Block signal and distant signal
Block signal and distant signal
A distant signal draws the engine driver's attention to the signal a while in advance.
sam, which awaits him at the next main signal in the route. The distant signal
So a block signal either shows "Expect to drive" (Vr1 = two green lights) or
wait "Vr0 = two yellow lights). The prototype has pre-signals either 400 m, 700 m
or 1000 m in front of the main signal, depending on the speed limit on the route.
Block signal can also be combined with a
(see picture 2). To do this, both signals are marked with the help of the with a green marker
marked purple cable connected to each other. The purple cable with the yellow one
Marking has no use here, so it does not have to be connected to the block signal
become. The distant signal is supplied with power via its brown and yellow
connecting cable. So the distant signal always shows the signal aspect of the block signal.
A distant signal shows the engine driver the aspect of the next main signal in direction before he
pass it. The distant signal shows either "expect go" (Vr1 = two green lights) or "expect stop" (Vr0
= two yellow lights). Real the distant signals are placed 400m, 700m or 1000m in front of the
main signal, depending on the allowed high-speed.

signals have to be connected by the green marked lilac wire. The yellow marked lilac wire of the
distant signal is not used here. The electric power is connected to the distant signal by the
brown and the yellow wire. So the distant signal always shows the same aspect as the main
distant signal (see figure 2). For that both
conventional or digital
Color light block signals belong to the group of the main signals and they are the plainest
members of this group. You can find them at the free parts of the rail lines - as a rule at the right
If the signal can not be put up on the right side, a chessboard-slab has to be put up on this place.
You can find them at the illustrations on the previous page in H0, TT and N. They can be cut out,
pasted on a pin and put up on your model railway layout. The high model has to be placed at the
right side out of the rails and the lower one between two rails. The lower slab has only a very
If the following block is free, the color light block signal shows "go" (Hp1 = green). After the head
of the train has passed the block signal, it changes over to "stop" (Hp0 = red). A following train
has to wait in front of the signal until the first train has left the block. Then the signal changes to
"go" and the second train is allowed to enter the block.

Nomenclature for block signals
The signal is a board with self-adhesive

Automatic block signals are identified with the help of Arabic numbers (1, 2, 3, ...).
In the direction of the kilometering of the route is counted up (this is called "counting
direction "), in the other direction backwards.
Odd numbers (1, 3, 5 ...) are installed in the counting direction, the
even numbers (2, 4, 6 ...).
The signal encloses a slab with self-pasting nomenclature pictures. Cut one of them out and

Automatical block signals you have to label by arabic numbers (1, 2, 3, ...).
In the direction of the line-kilometers it is counted forward (it is called "counting direction"), in
the other direction backwards.
Use in counting direction odd (1, 3, 5, ...) and in the other direction even numbers (2, 4, 6, ...).
