Basic of distant signals

A distant signal informs a train of the indication of the following signal but does not convey any information on the state of the line between the distant signal and the next signal. Distant signals are used in approach to main signals and  to permissive signals.

Distant signals carry a yellow plate on there mast. Distant signals in the opposit direction flash and carry on there mast a yellow plate with black lines.
