|A semaphore signal at Bad Doberan (former DR area) at
Hp 0: stop.
The signal is equipped with gas lanterns. The black board with the white spots mounted to the lower part of the post is a Zs 103 (Rautentafel/Diamond Board).
|Another semaphore signal in DR area. At the lower
portion of the post you can see a Zs 103 Rautentafel.
In front you see an orange "W" (a Ra 11a waiting sign) equipped with two lamps (upper right and below) for the Ra 12 signal. Below there is a So 8 Halt Board.

|Two semaphore signals seen from the rear side.|
|Semaphores at Lübeck Hbf. Also you see high Sh 0 line-close
(shunting) signals (Gleissperrsignale). The triangles below are Zs 3 speed signals.
To the right, instead of a Gleissperrsignal a Ra 11 waiting signal is used.
When the line from Hamburg becomes electrified in some years, the wire-operated semaphores will go away.
|The main signal shows Hp 0: stop for train movements, the shunting signal shows Sh 1: shunting allowed.|
|Hp2 + Vr 0:
Slow, expect stop.
The red circle marks the position of the 2000 Hz Indusi magnet.
|A closer look on the distant signal: Recently (as of 2001), all gas and
petroleum lamps have been replaced by solar driven LEDs (see inset).
Since this signal does not have the arrow-shaped wing, it is a two-aspect signal, capable of showing expect stop, expect clear, but not expect slow.
|Another solar-lit distant signal (at Vr 2: expect slow).
The wing's white/yellow colour identifies this as a western-style (DB) signal, a DR signal would have a red/white wing.
To the right of the right rail, you see the 1000 Hz Indusi magnet.
