Railway Track Signs

Post by Hermann Kuhne »

Following the wonderful response I had regarding the signal lights used on the Pietmaritzburg line, I again need some help.
I would appreciate it if someone could give me some info on the various track sign boards used on our railway routes. Signs like speed restrictions, whistle boards etc. and the correct placement (distances) of these sign boards - if possible. Would appreciate it!

Steve, when you've put it all together can you post it on the forum? I'm sure others would be interested. I'm currently studying my driver's manual and it looks like the various boards (whistle, watering, warning, speed restriction, etc) are not all in one place in the manual so good luck collecting them together!

Yes indeed - post them here Steve. The kind of reference material we do need on the Forum.
