MCB (Manually Controlled Barrier)

MCB (Manually Controlled Barrier)

"In the UK, such crossings are categorised as 'Manually Controlled Barriers' (MCB) because they are always manually controlled, usually from a signal box. Some are known as MCB-CCTV level crossings, because they are supervised by video link to the signal box from which they are remotely controlled." (Wikipedia )

Some modern MCB crossings are of type MCB-OD, which uses obstacle detectors to determine the crossing is clear rather than a visual check by the Signaller.

For instructions on how to operate a MCB in SimSig, please see this page , or read this walkthrough , using Red Cow LC on the Exeter Sim.
