    or at least make a hakata shinkansen station? Because from my knowledge I don’t think there would be a building in trainz that is made for hakata and must be custom made.
    That would take years. Like the Tokaido Shinkansen we are talking about literarily about 10 years plus I think to make it. A comparable project in size and scope is the just released London to Lille route that was announced a while ago in the Freeware forum. The author took 16 years to make it and that is without caternary. However Shinkansen routes run almost constant through cities so a full size prototype would be I think even longer to make. A sort of route that captures the general feeling would be possible I think and if I had no project I would probably had a go at it. But no time.

    They were made by Keimei a while ago - they are still avaible on the DLS.

    JP Signals.

    Can anybody explain the difference between:

    JP signal xHome
    JP signal xStarting
    JP signal xBlock

    Thank you.

    I am still working on my version of Tsurumi. I have a lot left to do, but it is coming along.

    I'm no expert, but I believe the starting signals are usualy placed at stations. They tell the train when it's ok the leave the station. The Block signals pretty much work like blocking signals of the US. The train enters a block and the signal is red untill the train exits the block.Not sure what the homing signal does. Hope that helps.

    Block signals are called "閉塞 信号機" (Heisoku Shingoki) and are used on mainline tracks to maintain the spacing between trains. They're usually placed at regular intervals, called blocks, between 300m and 1200m long (depending on the line's maximium speed: the higher the speed, the larger the distance between signals).

    Starting signals are called "出発信号機" (Shuppatsu Shingoki) and are placed at the end of a platform. They act like absolute (non "permissive") block signals. For larger stations, there might be more than one starting signal (again, located atleast 300 meters apart), and in some other cases, such as with mid-mainline stops without any swithces, there might be no starting signal - it's place being taken over by a standard block signal.

    Home signals are called "場内信号機" (Jonai Shingoki) and are located before the station, usually placed either before the first switch or at atleast 300m from the rear end of the station platform. All home signals are absolute.
    In areas of high traffic density, a second "home signal" might be installed in the center of the platform section, to allow one train to enter the station at the same time as the other one is leaving.


    Generally, the signal placement is as follows:



    (Home) [Platform] (Starting) <------------> (Block) <------------> (Block) <---// //---> (Block) <------------> (Block) <------------> (Home) [Platform] (Starting)


    Home signals and starting signals respectively delimit the start and the end of a station's area.



    Block signals generally use five color light combinations:

    Red - "停止" (Teishi) - Stop. If the signal is a "permissive" one (such as with mid-mainline block signals), the driver may pass a signal at red at a maximium speed of 15 Km/h after waiting for atleast one minute and after contacting the signaller.

    Double Yellow - "警戒" (Keikai) - Warning: distance to the next signal is unusually short (around 300m) - maximum permitted speed is 25 Km/h.

    Yellow - "注意" (Chui) - Caution: next signal will be Red (if it's placed at more than 600m) or it will be a double-yellow one (if it's placed at less than 600m) - maximum permitted speed is 45 Km/h (for some Kintetsu and Meitetsu railway lines, this limit is increased to 65 Km/h).

    Yellow-Green - "減速" (Gensoku) - Reduce Speed: next signal will be a yellow or a double-yellow one. With this, generally the maximium permitted speed is 70 Km/h, but line and company variations exist (for example, JR Group also uses Gensoku signals with 50 or 65 Km/h limits, some Kintetsu ones have a 95Km/h limit and some Meitetsu ones use an 85Km/h limit).

    Green - "進行" (Shinkō) - Clear: proceed at line speed or at a maximium of 130 Km/h.



    Besides these, there are two more "special" indications:

    Double-Green -
    "高速進行" (Kōsoku Shinkō) - High Speed Clear: proceed at more than 130 Km/h (used only on the Narita Sky Access Line and formerly on the Hokuetsu Express Hokuhoku Line - both have a maximium line speed of 160 Km/h).

    Flashing Yellow-Green - "抑速" (Yokosoku) - Reduce Speed: proceed at 105 Km/h, expect a Yellow or Yellow-Green signal aspect. It's intended for those lines with 300m-block signalling but with a line speed of 120Km/h or higher. Currently it's only used on the Keikyu Main Line (between Shinagawa and Yokohama) and on the Narita Sky Access Line.


    Here are the most common signals and their aspects:





    As a final note, between two conflicting speed restrictions, the one to be followed is always the lower one. for example:

    - Line speed limit of 80Km/h with "Chui" signal (45Km/h) -> proceed at 45Km/h.

    - Line speed limit of 60Km/h with "Gensoku" signal (70Km/h) -> proceed at 60Km/h.

    new site:

    And use and adblocker. I use 1blocker but you can also use adblock plus. On top of that a good antivirus with popup blocking is also a good idea.

    @AlexMaria - Thank you so much for your very detailed explanation of the Japanese signal system. Very helpful. 👍
    Also thanks to @railshuttle 🙂

    Sorry about that. Was wondering would anyone be interested to see the Meitetsu series 2000 trains in trainz 12 and beyond. They come in three flavors. They remind me of the old Narita express trains in the front.[/QUOTE]

    I'd also like a Meitetsu 2000 Series for trainz... they're quite nice-looking...
    There's also quite a lack of central/western Japan major private railways' stock for trainz...

    Yet, if i remember correctly, someone may actually have made it for trainz a while ago, but never relased it - there was only a low-quality video on youtube (wich, with all due probability, is no longer avaible...).

    I may give it a try sooner or later...

    The Meitetsu 2000 Series design was actually based on JR East's older Narita Express (the 253 Series), as the latter's one had proven to be quite well suited to Airport Express duties. In fact, the 2000 Series initially even ran in 3-car sets, before they were lenghtened to 4-cars in 2008.
