How to use trains and signals - Part 3

How to use signals

Table of contents

Place some signals

If you would like to use more than one train on a rail, you have to place signals. There are two types of signals available in Simutrans. The first type are the two-way-signals. The other type is a one-way-signal. You should not use two-way signals, because the will increase the risk of jams.

Signal types

Signal Description
Two-Way-Signal Two-Way-Signal
One-Way-Signal (left direction) One-Way-Signal (left direction)
One-Way-Signal (right direction) One-Way-Signal (right direction)

 

You can place a signal as following:
  1. activate the signal-building mode (you can do this with the signal-icon in the rail-tools menu)
  2. click on a rail


If click on an existing signal (and the signal building mode is active) the signal will be replaced with another signal. This happens in the following order:

Two-Way-Signal One-Way-Signal (left direction) One-Way-Signal (right direction)
