Lamp Out List Accessory Program

The Lamp Out List Program is used to generate testing reports (test sheets) for field FRA/commisioning tests.

The content of these reports is dependent on:

  1. Railroad/convention (NORAC, Seaboard, Chessie, etc)
  2. signal type (colorlight, searchlight, position light, dwarf)
  3. route
  4. lamp outs (downgrades)
  5. track code

A database of default signal aspects and downgrades is provided.

A set of dialog boxes are provided to define/configure expected aspects and downgrades for each signal/route combination.

The Lamp Out List Program is a pre-requisite for the Automatic Testing Module.
