Crossover to opposite track (multiple track mainline)

In Belgium we talk about "change of regime". It means that the next signal will flash if the previous had the steady state, or recto-versa. The regime is the kind of signals. Signals for the contraflow continously flash and the the wide top points to the left. These signals are placed to the right or above the track they govern. When a train goes over from the normal flow the contra flow it will be indicated with a "V" above the sign.

Crossover to normal flow





Main signals from left hand and right hand side can carry an other sign

The signals only carry the sign that can be used. An example is the situation at Bilzen.
