Switch-Two Red Arrows


Well-known member
I see 2 red arrows on a switch where normally there is a red and green. What is the meaning of double red?
I can't seem to find an adjustment that will correct this.
That means the switch is broken.

1) The track is not connected properly.
2) The switch lever/machine is too far away.
3) The track is twisted, or the switch is badly formed - like too tight a radius from the switch.

There are probably other reasons, but these are the most common ones I've encountered over the years.
