I currently have an intersection of trains. 4 go parallel and 1 perpendicular. I would like to let the 4 parallel trains all go if they approach the intersection at the same time. However, they all stop until one train gets through. I have to admit I'm not so great at signals, so I'm sure I'm doing something wrong. Here's the layout:

If the lines have high activity, and you have realistic acceleration enabled, it might be a good idea to use bridges for the crossing instead of having to use signals, which are blocking – Private Pansy Aug 5 '12 at 13:17

This is the perfect opportunity for path signals. They show the train which routes are available and therefore the parallel trains will only have to stop when the perpendicular path is taken.
