||For variable signals, a list of possible signal aspects, each separated by a semicolon (e.g.: |
||Shortened Braking Distance
||Is the signal placed closer than usual to the next signal? Either (|
||When a main/combined signal is not visible from distance (e.g. because of track curves), a repeater is installed to repeat the aspect of the main/combined signal. Use |
yes to mark these signals, otherwise use
no or omit this tag.
||When activated, the frequency reading of the signal in Hertz (Hz).
||When activated, the voltage reading of the signal in Volts (V).
||The displayed signal speed in Kilometers/Hour. For values in Miles/Hour, it is necessary to prefix it with |
||The exact function of the signal, such as an Entry Signal (|
entry), Exit Signal (
exit), Block Signal (
block) or Intermediate Signal (

||A signal added to another signal, and indicates the behaviour in cases of failures of the actual signal. Also known as caution signal. For example the train may pass the signal at low speed and must be prepared to stop at any obstacle. Either (|

||Subtype or order
||The subtype of a signal or what has to be down at/after this signal.
||Specifies for which types of vehicles this signal is valid. This can be multiple units (|
