On the side facing the driver, the arm of the semaphore signal is painted red with a vertical white stripe. The signal’s opposite side is painted white with a vertical black stripe. The signal’s entire mechanical assembly, which is located on top of a tubular or lattice post, comprises an arm, a pivot, a counterweight spring stop, etc.
A kerosene or electric lamp, controlled by a twilight switch, is fixed to the post so that the signal is visible at night as well. Additionally, the moving signal arm is equipped with a pair of red and green coloured glasses and a spectacle.
The red glass is placed at the top end of the spectacle, and the green glass is placed at the lower end, allowing the driver to see the red light when the arm is horizontal and the green light when the arm is lowered. Both a halt signal and a warner signal can be used with the semaphore signal.
