    Default Signals, BNSF Hi-Line Subdivision

    Hello All!

    While watching the Pentrex video "Across Marias Pass", I noticed a signal at the Essex crossover. It has two heads, the upper head has three aspects, and the lower head has four aspects. Does anyone know what the four aspects are, and how they are used? I am guessing that the fourth aspect may be lunar, but do not know for sure. Any help greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Bob

    Thanks jtsdadinaz!

    That info did help some. I am trying to figure how the aspect is diplayed on the four aspect head. Is the lunar aspect at the top? I do know that the red aspect is at the bottom, as I did see it displayed. My guess would be...

    Lunar
    Green
    Yellow
    Red

    Is this correct?

    Thanks again!

    Bob

    Red is always on top
    Yellow/Flashing Yellow
    Green
    Lunar

    Hello Macster!

    Checking the tape again shows the red aspect at the bottom. However, driving by a CSX interlocking, their red aspect is at the top. Guess it depends on the railroad. Anyone know about BNSF Hi-Line Sub?

    Bob.

    Here in Savannah Ga on a three light signal green is at the top yellow in the middle and red is at the bottom.There are a few interlock signals that have a fixed red at the top.

    Must be a BN thing if red isnt on the top. Cause around here I saw a BN signal that had red in the middle green on top and yellow on the bottom...strange.

    I guess it really doesn't matter what position the light are in as long as the proper aspects are displayed.
