Default Network node variable: "activetravellers"

Hey all.

I may have misunderstood how the variable, "activetravellers" works. I thought it would indicate the number of TEs currently within the area of the network node in question.
In stead it seems to increase by 1 every time a traveller passes through the network node. Is this the way it is supposed to work, or is there a bug here?

The variable in question is located here: MODEL:/NN1>variables/activetravellers

Attached model for demonstration.

Best regards

Hi Christian,

Its true that node value increases by 1 each time traveler passes through a network node.If you want to compute the no.of travellers traveling on edge you can try like this.
You get the no.of travellers that are passed through current node and other node using command getnodenum(obj ).Obtain the difference between them that gives the no.of travellers that are in transit betwen the nodes
For getting the traveler on other node use
ownerobject( tonode( getnodenum( obj ) ) )
