What is red over yellow (About the Site)
- What does red over yellow mean?
- When a railroad signal displays a red light above a yellow light, it signifies to the engineer his train is taking the diverging route through a switch and must be ready to stop at the next signal. This is a common signal for a train entering a side track or crossing over to another track.
Rule 239, Diverging Approach. From Southern Pacific Western Region Timetable 3, effective October 29, 1989.
