I changed one end of the yard a little bit to get more flexibility.
In order still to be able to move three F units or two big SD units at the end to another track, I  decided to make a cut through the grade.

Startet to build a brackground scene. This will partly hide the nolix going down/up.

Nothing happened meanwhile, just enjoying running some trains.
But I was thinking about 'planting' some signals. The thing is I know nothing about signaling on US railroads.
So looking at the above overview images, where would you place some signals and what kind of signals?
Right now I'm not sure if I want working ones or just dummies.

Sorry if I'm asking too much... :scared:

Overall its a little complicated. But boiled down absolutely you put signals wherever a train could enter an area already occupied by another train. So ends of passing sidings, places where a double track goes to a single, ends of yards, and near crossovers etc.

Using German signal practices, and North American signals, would probably be "close enough".  The hardware may look different, but the principles are the same, no matter where the signals are.
