Whistle Indicators 'W', or 'W/L' on a square yellow board. The 'W' is a general whistle indicator while the 'W/L' stands for Whistle for Level Crossing. The latter is also seen in Hindi with the characters 'see/pha' == 'seetee bajao - phatak'). Usually provided on approach to unmanned level crossings (and for manned level crossings without a clear view) about 250m away from the level crossing. Similarly, a 'W/B' sign is seen (less often) on approach to a bridge.

The 'W' indicates whistle means loco driver has to give horn whereas the 'W/L' stands for Whistle for Level Crossing.

W/l stand for whistle loud level crossing ahead...used to warn drivers to blow horns as alarm to people close to track to avoid accident as those are accident prone areas may be blind turns....
