Two possible reasons :
  • In unsignalled areas,...
  • In MANUAL mode ...

Ok, I can see that. But again: necessarily with the G key?

Then, I remember Taras Berezn'ak's TrumGame logic:
When player's tram approaches to junction, other trams (AI) don't "know", what will it do then, so all they are waiting.
This way, the player can press the special button (Enter in that case), to declare, that he agree to pass the first tram, so he free the node in front of him for closest AI tram.
Also, in places, where two-track lines become single-track.
Note, the switch-throwing itself can be done by controller setting (IRL) or by the rod - manually. So it is separated procedure.
Try it-I gave a link to game download at Hash House thread.

... I'm not sure, but maybe the F8 window would be a bit more intuitive that way? ...

I had considered that solution, that might be a bit more intuitive, but discarded it because I think that the implemented solution is less intrusive on the screen.

Maybe in the future it is worth once again to think about placing the switch symbols better on top of each other instead of next to each other.

Here is the link to the idea, only for the case it has not been seen in connection with this thread here so far.
