Oneway or Twoway Presignals?

Signals have two sides, in the basics part, the other side wasn't important, since trains can't turn back, etc. etc... But in more complex things, a badly placed twoway combo presignal can make errors in your network.

Part 1: The Station entrance problem with two entries

The error

In this station the combo presignal can make errors, but can you notice why? If presignals F-H are green then upper-right side of combo presignal C is green too. Even if presignals D and E are red, presignal A remains green. The problem is simple: Presignals calculate signal blocks, not the choosable tracks: trains cannot reach platforms F-H from A through C, but presignals CANNOT see this!

Fix this error by making the combo a oneway signal

How to fix this? Just change the combo presignal C to oneway (shown above) or add an oneway combo presignal just after it, like below:

Or add a oneway combo presignal is added after it

With this layout, entry presignal A won't be affected by the signals for platforms F-H.
