Fixed Distant

Fixed Distant

A Fixed Distant is a signal that will only show a caution aspect to the driver. They are found where the amount of traffic using a line isn't sufficient to justify installing a signal also capable of showing green, or where caution is the only appropriate aspect to display, for example at the end of a single line. In SimSig, they are represented either by a normal signal , or by a semaphore distant symbol. In both cases the signal will never show any other aspect.

In real life, the vast majority consist of a sign bearing the yellow and black pattern of a distant signal, as seen here , although colour lights with only a yellow lamp are sometimes used.
