Stop stage:

This obviously means you should stop your train

 

Proceed/Proceed Through:

This means you have free path and you can proceed driving,

diffirent rules can apply, let me describe them for you beneath the images:

Proceed/proceed through with at least 75KM/h

 

Proceed/proceed through with a maximum speed of 60KM/h

 

Proceed/proceed through with a maximum speed of 40KM/h

 

Other proceed/proceed through signals:

All these signals means proceed at linespeed,

If only 1 green lantern is present, it means

the next main signal is red, for an explanation of

a main signal, go to main signal

 

Other signals

 

Crossing Signals:

Crossing signals with an orange lantern and a white lantern are placed slightly away from the

crossing, crossing signals with 2 orange lanterns and potentially a white lantern are placed at the crossing.

If the crossing signal is static orange, it means the crossing hasn't gone down correctly,

In this case, when you are at a signal with 2 orange lanterns you should stop and wait for

the signal to turn off or flash white. If you've been waiting for more than a minute, you

should look around to see if you are going to in-danger other people and if that's not the case,

contact the control tower and ask for permission to drive.

If they allow you to proceed, drive slowly past the signal and use the horn on your train.

If they say no, you must wait for the crossing to go down correctly.

 

Flashing white/turned off:

If a crossing signal is either turned off or flashing white, it means the crossing/upcomming

crossing has gone correctly down and you can safely get past it without in-dangering others.

 

Main Signals:

A main signal is a signal who is able to show stop, proceed, proceed through and stop and proceed.

Some examples of a main signal is as following:

Signal Types from the left: Entry Signal, Exit Signal, Platform Exit Signal, Automatic Middle Block Signal/Exit Signal with 3 lanterns

 

Description and aspects of different main signals

Entry signals:

An entry signal is a signal with 4 lanterns with a speed indicator underneath itself

Seen from left to right, the signal aspects are as following:

  • Stop
  • Stop, then proceed at maximum 40KM/h
  • Proceed at maximum 40KM/h
  • Proceed at maximum 60KM/h
  • Proceed with at least 75KM/h
  • Proceed Through with a maximum of 40KM/h, all other main signals shows proceed or proceed through
  • Proceed Through with a maximum of 60KM/h, all other main signals shows proceed or proceed through
  • Proceed Through with at least 75KM/h, all other main signals shows proceed or proceed through
  • You entry way is shorter than usual, proceed with a maximum of 40KM/h
  •  

    On lager stations an entry signal may look as following:

    this is to firstly indicate the direction you are entering the station,

    but also if you have an extra entry signal at a station to be able to

    show the aspect "broken arm" which means you have free path to the next

    entry signal, the "broken arm" aspect looks like following:

     

    Platform Exit Signal/Dwarf Signal:

    The reason I've decided to combine Dwarf Signals and Platform Exit Signals

    is because they are very simular to each other with almost all signal aspects

    the only diffirence is a platform exit signal has a red and a green lantern aswell.

    Platform Exit Signals have anywhere from 4-6 lanterns while dwarf signals have

    either 3 or 4 lanterns, different aspects are as following:

    Seen from left to right, the signal aspects are as following, all aspects

    and descriptions apply to Dwarf signals and platform exit signals:

     

  • No passing: you are not allowed to pass this signal
  • Passing Alowed: You may now pass the signal, the path is clear
  • Passing with caution Alowed: You may pass the signal with max 40KM/h, path is not guaranteed to be clear
  • Signal is Cancelled: You may ignore the signal and start shunting, safety is in your own hands
  •  

    Stop, proceed, stop and proceed and proceed through, applies to platform exit signals only.

    Seen from left to right, signal apspects are "stop" and "proceed"

    If the signal is flashing red you should stop before the signal

    and then proceed with a maximum of 40KM/h past the signal,

    the path is not guaranteed to be clear from other trains

    If the signal is flashing green however, you have free path,

    all other main signals shows either proceed or proceed through.
