W J THORROWGOOD, A E TATTERSALL and J S WILSON THE RESPONSE OF SLENDER, The railways of Victoria use a mix of railway signalling practices: British route signalling with home and distant signals (2 position signalling) and American speed signalling (3 position signalling).

[10] Semaphore signals were used on the very first railway lines, but only a bare minimum were provided as the time interval system being relied upon instead.

[11]   Power signalling. Power signalling arrived in in Sydney Yard, with the commissioning of Station Box. This installation was electro-pneumatic and controlled from a miniature lever frame supplied by the McKenzie, Holland & Westinghouse Power Signal Co.

of Worcester, England. Although the lines were not continuously track-circuited and The box contains 3 project files for Melbourne and Metropolitan Tramways Board all-electric trams and South African Railways and Harbours 10E locomotives and 3 technical files for Class camshaft unit indicator and Light Rail Transit Association including Sydney double deck ://   The automatic electric signals on the Liverpool Overhead Railway, fitted in(Patent: ) were operated by an improved long-pull electromagnet, and inwith the permission of the Metropolitan District Railway, he fitted up a complete installation, the chief result of which was that he gave the use of the long-pull   The power-operated three-position upper quadrant semaphore signal, American in origin, was introduced to New South Wales by the English signal engineer, Mr C.B.

All mainline signals have two signal 'heads' (originally upper quadrant semaphore arms but now colour light, LED or searchlight), both are always lit.
