    Default Realistic signaling

    On the most of MSTS US Westerns routes ( paywares ore not ) the "Approach" indication is always preceded by the "Advance Approach", "Approach Medium" or "Approach Limited" indication ( Flashing Yellow ).
    Is this comform to the Westerns railroad practices?

    In our signal code, the "Flashing Yellow" is only in use when the Stop signal announced by the next "Warning" ( Steady Yellow) is installed at a distance lower than the braking distance for the maximum speed limit.

    It's been my experience that on the UP, a "hard" yellow is always preceded by a flashing yellow, except those rare occasions where the locomotives pass their respective block entrances at the same time, which doesn't happen very often. If you're a fast train following a slow train, you'd see green, green, *green for however long till you started overtaking*, flashing yellow, yellow, red.
