How do railway signals work? What is the meaning of double yellow?

Fourier vs Laplace Part 2   Added by: moderator*^~  Jan 06 2016 (12:23AM)
Railways tracks are divided in subsections of 500m. In the colonial days when British imperial units were used, it was 500 yards. Now it is 500 metres.
At the end of a track section there is a signal!
Now Indian Railways follows a four coded signal system:-
1> RED :- Means STOP
YELLOW :- Means PROCEED with a Maximum permissible speed not exceeding 15kmph
3> DOUBLE YELLOW:- Usually it means PROCEED and with reducing your speed slightly as it is most likely that you will encounter a yellow in the next section. However there is no hard and fast rule here as trains can encounter a green in the next signal as well.
4> GREEN:- Means PROCEED All is clear.
Now as to what happens and how to the signal operate:-
If there is no train on the next three sequence, that is if the next three track sections are clear, you get a GREEN!
If there is no train on the next two sequence, that is if the next two sections are clear, you get a DOUBLE YELLOW!
If there is no train on the next sequence, that is if only the earlier section is clear, then there is a YELLOW!
If there is a train in the next sequence, that is if there is no track sequnce ahead free, you get a RED!
Earlier IR would follow the three light sequence, Red, Yellow and Green.
This would mean that loco pilots could never heave a sigh of relief, as you never knew when your GREEN would would turn to YELLOW
Now with the four signal sequence, and better LOCOs like WAP4s, 5s and 7s with faster releasing brakes, pilots also have an extra 500m to brake as there is an extra DOUBLE-YELLOW to warn you of an impending YELLOW!
This also means that train speeds have also increased as the pilots have an extra one section to brake on or speed on!
Hoped it helped!

=========== Detailed Discussion about the Term "Rail Fan" and the hobby "Rail Fanning" ==========
I am a Rail Fan since the year 1990 when I was a kid. Then many ups and downs in my life but this hobby of mine is always saved from any influence.
Now what does the term "Rail Fan" means ? This BLOG is dedicated for the answer of this question.
Particular BLOG give you a "Detailed Explanation" about the Term "Rail Fan" also known as Feroquinologist and the activities associated with Rail Fanning.
Definition of Rail Fan:
A railfan, rail buff or train buff (American English), railway enthusiast or railway buff (Australian/British English), or trainspotter or anorak (British English), is a person interested in a recreational capacity in rail transport.Railfans of many ages can be found worldwide. Railfans often combine their interest with other hobbies, especially photography and videography, radio scanning, model railroading, studying railroad history and participating in train station and rolling stock preservation efforts. Magazines dedicated to railfanning include Trains and Railfan & Railroad.
Other Names used to identify Rail Fan:
The term metrophile is used by some to identify a railfan with a particular interest in metro (subway, underground) systems. The study of railways, or a general interest in them as a hobby, is sometimes jocularly known as "ferroequinology" (literally, "study of iron horses").In the UK, railfans are sometimes called trainspotters or anoraks. The term gricer has been used in the UK since at least 1969, and is "Said to have been current in 1938 amongst members of the Manchester Locomotive Society", according to the Oxford English Dictionary. There has been speculation that the term derives from "grouser", one who collects dead grouse after a shoot, but other etymologies have also been suggested.In Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, however, the term Gricer has become increasingly popular within the Railway Enthusiast Community, with Griceling being used for younger enthusiasts.In Australia, they are sometimes referred to as "gunzels".For the avoidance of doubt, the term does not extend to an interest in trams.
Activities of Rail Fan:
The hobby extends to all aspects of rail transport systems. Railfans may have one or more particular concentrations of interest, such as:
Railway locomotives and rolling stock
Still-used or disused railroad lines, bridges, tunnels, stations, and other infrastructure
Subways and other local rail transit systems
Railway history
Railroad photography
Railway signalling
Rail transport modelling (traditional, physical) — V-scale modelling
Collection of railway artifacts, in particular: tickets, timetables, railway paper, number plates, builders' plates, railway crockery. It should be noted that many items such as timetables and railway paper (i.e. internal railway documents) are collected for study and not just as collectibles. There are many retailers and auction houses specializing in such material, both those with street premises and those only on-line.
Railway art or architecture
Railway operations, economics or commerce
Railway preservation/restoration
Level junction. This is where the railfan can be interested also in the railroad or "grade" crossing signals.
Monitoring railroad radio communications with a radio scanner.
Indeed, the scope of the subject is so large that fans may additionally concentrate their interest on a particular country, town, operating company, field of operations, or era in history – or a combination of any of the above.

Working Principle of Diesel Engine and details of WDM-3D Diesel Locomotive

================= How Diesel Locomotives Work ===================
The Engine and Generator
The main engine in this locomotive is a General Motors EMD 710 series engine. The "710" means that each cylinder in this turbocharged, two-stroke, diesel V-12 has a displacement of 710 cubic inches (11.6 L). That's more than double the size of most of the biggest gasoline V-8 car engines -- and
we're only talking about one of the 12 cylinders in this 3,200-hp engine.
So why two-stroke? Even though this engine is huge, if it operated on the four-stroke diesel cycle, like most smaller diesel engines do, it would only make about half the power. This is because with the two-stroke cycle, there are twice as many combustion events (which produce the power) per revolution. It turns out that the diesel two-stoke engine is really much more elegant and efficient than the two-stroke gasoline engine. See How Diesel Two-Stroke Engines Work for more details.
You might be thinking, if this engine is about 24 times the size of a big V-8 car engine, and uses a two-stroke instead of a four-stroke cycle, why does it only make about 10 times the power? The reason is that this engine is designed to produce 3,200 hp continuously, and it lasts for decades. If you continuously ran the engine in your car at full power, you'd be lucky if it lasted a week.
Here are some of the specifications of this engine:
Number of cylinders: 12
Compression ratio: 16:1
Displacement per cylinder: 11.6 L (710 in3)
Cylinder bore: 230 mm (9.2 inches)
Cylinder stroke: 279 mm (11.1 inches)
Full speed: 904 rpm
Normal idle speed: 269 rpm
This giant engine is hooked up to an equally impressive generator. It is about 6 feet (1.8 m) in diameter and weights about 17,700 pounds (8,029 kg). At peak power, this generator makes enough electricity to power a neighborhood of about 1,000 houses!
So where does all this power go? It goes into four, massive electric motors located in the trucks.

What is Simultaneous Reception and Dispatch of Trains?
To maintain safety in thorough running of trains at larger stations; points and trap sidings should not be inserted in the main or through lines.
OFF at the same time, of all signals pertaining to the reception of two or more trains approaching a station at the same time is called simultaneous
Advantages :
™★ In single line section, track/section capacity will increase, if at all the stations, such facilities are made available.
™★ In double line, one train can be started from one line, while another train can be signaled to be received on another line.
