Hello there Community! It has been confirmed: A German route with H/V Signalling is coming! So here is a guide for this signalling system, perfect for beginners! Above you can see a H/V Signal. The H/V Signals are Split in main Signals, Hauptsignale, hence the 'H' and distant signals, Vorsignale, hence the 'V'. Above you see a signal with both main and distant aspects. The rectangular face on top displays the main aspect, the diagonal face on bottom displays the distant aspect. Let's take a look at the main signal aspects first. There are three (okay maybe four) main signal aspects: Hp0 - Red - You shall not pass! This signal is also sometimes called Hp00. Yes, there is an insignificant, minuscule difference between Hp0 and Hp00, read about it in my documentation. Hp1 - Green - Run you fools! Very standard signal aspect. Please note, that a Hp0 main signal doesn't give any information about the status of the next signal. This is particularly significant when entering sidings, as you could get a Hp1 directly in front of a Hp0. If you're interested to find out when a Hp1 is dangerous, look up So106. Hp2 -Green and Yellow - Continue at reduced speed. Unless indicated otherwise by a Zs3 (scroll down to find out what that is), your speed is now reduced to 40kph. The restriction is active until the train completely leaves the junction guarded by the Hp2, until you reach another speed indication, or until you reach a Zs10 (look it up if you want to). White lamp - Ignore this signal, expect replacement signal. Hp stands for Hauptsignal, engl. Main signal Let's take a look at the distant signals! Vr0 - Main signal showing Hp0. If you're ever reading of PZB, this fellow has an active 1000Hz magnet. Vr1 - Main signal showing Hp1. Basically the best you can ever get. Vr2 - Main signal showing the same speed restriction as given. Unless a Zs3v indicates otherwise, one should expect a speed limit of 40kph. If you're ever reading of PZB, this fellow has an active 1000Hz GPA/GPÜ. Blank? Yes, distant signals are blank if and only if they are placed directly under a Hp0, refer to the teaser photo. Congratulations to DTG for getting their signalling correct. White lamp? White lamps on a distant signal displaying any valid aspect mean that the main signal is very close. White lamps on a distant signal not showing any valid aspect signify that the signal is to be ignored. Repeaters. Distant signal repeaters are often used on higher speed lines. The repeater always shows the current status of the main signal, meaning the driver can see early what to expect. If you know about PZB: Repeaters can tell you when to release in a 1000Hz and not get obliterated by the 500Hz. Signal repeaters do not have the Ne2 board, scroll down to find out what that is. Vr stands for Vorsignal, engl. pre-signal or distant signal. Additional Signals: Zs3v - Temporary speed limit warning boards. The top row shows all possible shapes and positions of a Zs3v. The important thing is that the number is a warm yellow color. These boards are always mounted on a distant signal. Zs3 - Temporary speed limit board. The bottom row shows all possible shapes and positions of a Zs3. The important thing is that the number is a white color. These are most often used on signals leading in to a junction. The speed limit is then only valid whilst the train is passing the junction. Note: The Zs3's on RT look really weird, someone needs to convince me that they really look like that. This is the Ne2 board in the two possible shapes. This is placed on all lonely distant signals. It is missing on signal repeaters and distant signals directly under main signals. And that's all of it! I hope this will help you on your future journeys. Please check out the links in my signature to find the complete German signalling guide from scratch. Cheers, ProfCreeptonius!
