What type of signals are used in the tri-rail commuter train system?

  by 262
 
The present system is CTC,controled by the CSX BA dispatcher in Jacksonville. I have heard the signal heads refered to as C&O,Seaboard and trafic light style. The ones here in Lauderdale used to be the round targets all on singel masts. But with the new double track they are being changed to,single head from top to bottom green, red and yellow with snow hoods. On cantilever or signal bridge and mast. Trirail is due to start their own dispatching early next year.

Out of Curiosity does Tri-Rail use NORAC Signal Aspects?


If not what does the Letter D mean at the bottom of this signal?

Note the drawbridge in the background, the signal governs a movement
over the drawbridge in addition to other conditions.

I din't realize that was a drawbridge.

Thanks,

Tri-Rail is still dispatched by CSX and the CSX rules are in effect in this
territory.
