This site describes most of the signals, boards and signs that are being used by German Railways (Deutsche Bahn AG). I have divided the site into the following sections, and I have added some new pages on my model railway:
If you want to see some German signals on my small layout, here you go.
And some shortcuts:
If you find a symbol next to an item then there is a photograph available.
This site has substantially been improved by Michael Urlaub,
who is a signalman near
Schweinfurt and has spent much work on proofreading these pages giving
me lots of hints
and first-hand information.
Herr Theobold who works for the Hamburger Hochbahn has provided me with information about the Hamburg Subway signals.
My friend Zhang Bin from Beijing has provided translation of Chinese signal aspects.
Patrick Hertel from Berlin has provided some pictures from the Berlin S-Bahn.
Also I would like to thank Chris Kondur and Michael J. Stokes for helping me with British vs. US terminology.
