Neil - bit more information, please.

1. Is the Station a terminus with the two crossovers by the tunnel to the right of the station?

2. Presumeably British and what period/region?

Regards,
John

Thanks for the replies. This particular section is Scotland late nineties, early 2000's, West Highland. Kyle line. The station is a terminus although not supposed to be Kyle.

The two crossovers is supposed to be on the Highland mainline and is in a different section to the terminus station.

Tim, I will have German signalling to ask about next year. That will be coming up soon.

Cheers

Neil

Neil, I assume that the bridge to the right of the terminus conceals connections to another part of the layout.

In which case if you are using Colour light signals a two or three aspect on each platform as starter signals and a GPL (Ground Position Light) signal on the siding (add a trap point to the siding?)
If you wish to model the radio-token signalling there would be some extra signs as well.

Are the crossovers on the main line (I know little abut the Highland main line) converting a standard two way stretch into two single bi-directional lines, acting as emergency crossovers or what?

Regards,
John

Hi John,
You are right that the bridge does conceal connections to another part of the layout.

The crossovers are emergency crossovers.

Thanks

Neil - as emergency cross-overs I guess there would be one signal each line on the approach side of the crossings to halt trains - after that, if in use from a local ground frame, I think movements might be hand-signalled once the train was halted at the signal.

But if you cannot find out what the prototype does exactly, I can ask some signalling acquaintances on another forum for help.

Regards,
John
