Flank Locking

Flank Locking

This is where points are locked in a certain position by another Route . These points are not directly in the line of route. This gives protection to a train running through the Route by "deflecting" runaway trains away from the train given the route.

This feature is also known as Flank Protection. See here for an illustration.
