A COMPILATION OF RAIL SIGNS AND THEIR MEANINGS:
Compiled by me thanks to years of railfanning experience after reffering to many people and online material, I would quote an example with every sign to aid in understanding to the best extent possible:
The first thing we are concerned about when we are talking about movement of trains is anything which makes the train to de-accelerate, they can be in the following instances.
Oh btw, Ride index is a variable which details the comfort a human would experience while in motion. In technical terms it can be described as the function of amplitude of acceleration and frequency of oscillation. Ride index is measured on a scale of 5, 0 being the smoothest and most comfortable ride while 5 is the most horrible one. Quite a complex one at that, i tried putting some random variables and solving it but didnt really work out. Indian Railway Employees dont get paid for nothing after all.They are good at this stuff :)
