Signals of the British Rail is the oldest signal system in the world. though the signalling system is very basical and quite simpel to understand. Some signals needs special attention.
Adjust the speed of your train when you are driving correctly according the given signa laspect.
When you are driving a Career mode and you overruns a Red signal (SPAD) the scenario will be terminated and unless you have saved just before overruning you have to start all over again.
Watcht the video about the British Rail Signalling:
Upper quadrant and lower quadrant showing a horizontal red arm and either red light.
On approaching a signal that indicates a danger aspects, the signal could change aspects into a proceed at low speed aspect when a route is set into a diverted direction. You then are allowed to release the brakes and continue to proceed with resticted speed untill the poin(s) is (are) cleared by your train you drive, then normal track speed is allowed.
Repeater signals indicaties a Danger aspect at the oncoming main signal. Mostly these signals are situated at blind curves and at the beginning of platforms
Distance or approach signal: Caution, prepare to stop at the next signal.
Distance or approach signal:
Double yellow: Prepare to stop at the second signal;
This signal is given at lines with high speed. The signal indicates a pre-caution aspect Drivers now has to slow down slowly and earliy and to get prepared to stop at the second signal. The first oncoming signal wil show a single yellow aspect.
Repeater signals indicaties an approach or distance aspect The only differance is the fish tail end tro indicate the approach of an approach or distance signal.
Semaphore signal: Upper quardrant: diagonally postioned red arm pointing upwards with a green light.
Semaphore signal: Lower quardrant: diagonally postioned red arm pointing downwards with a green light.
Clear aspect; Distance or apporach signal
Semaphore signal: Upper quardrant: diagonally postioned yellow arm pointing upwards with a green light.
Semaphore signal: Lower quardrant: diagonally postioned yellow arm pointing downwards with a green light.
Repeater signal showing an oncoming clear aspect
Route diverging aspects: A Green signal with a white litted stripe on top of the signal
The clear aspect with a light row showing the direction the route is set. A single yellow signal was given prior to the approach on this signal.
The yellow signal indicates the next signal at danger. Proceed is permnitted but you need to get prepared to stop at the next signal.
Route diverging uasing a double signal on a rack. The green positioned light indicating the route diverging to the right or to the left depending the position of the light aside the yellow lights.
Route indicators showing a number mainly at station or yard entrance signals indicated the route which is set to a certain tracknumer corresponding with the number shown at the signal. The letter indicates a route set to a certain city or village, mostly the first letter of the city name.
