I encountered a crash using PBS-Signals in my last game.

I'm using clean trunk r15595 and 3 NewGRFs:
NewStations v0.42
Industrial Stations Renewal 0.8.0
YARRS v0.2

The crash will occur where the screen is centered.
This task depends upon

Thanks for the report, fix is being worked on.

Please note that such a loop will not work with path signals. As it is not possible to have
two track reservations that cross itself, the train from the right can never successfully
reserve a path to the next signal and will not continue. As a work around, place the signal
directly before the crossing and not behind.
In this specific example though, you either need to enlarge the loop or shorten the trains
as otherwise the crossing tile would not be cleard.
