Signal Packages

One of the most important resources are signal packages developed by a number of people. These extend the basic set of signals provided by Train Director. They use scripting associated to signals to create a rich set of signal aspects that make simulations much more realistic.

The packages are organized by railroad company, and are used by many of the simulations available from the territory directory page.

Railroad Company:  DB (Germany)
Last Update: February 18, 2018
Requires Train Director 3.9f

Signal package for the German Railroads. The package includes a demo scenario (kleinstadt.trk) illustrating the use of the signals and a table with the signal icons (segnali.trk), and the instruction manuals, in English and Italian. Thanks to Paolo Rosati: from his signal packages I've gleaned many and many inspirations.

Requires Train Director 3.9.1

Latest version of package containing all the icons and scripts needed to simulate the Italian (RFI – Rete Ferroviaria Italiana) signals.

Important Note: This package is more compliant to the rules than the previous ones, and doesn’t allow many actions that were possible to perform in the past, even if not allowed by the rules. This can have an impact on previous layouts. The authors of past layouts may have used some of the now prevented actions to automate their simulations in the way they wanted. Now these layouts may not work as desired, so it is highly recommended to install the new package in a dedicated folder, and to keep the previous package, so any layout that should become problematic would still be playable by just changing the signal folder in the program preferences.

Other important notes, as well as a description of the demo layouts available in the specific package are available in this file, and in the manual (file _Istructions_rfi_5.0.pdf) included in the package.

The preceding functioning version (4.6) is still available below...


File: Segnali_RFI_4.6.zip
Released by: Paolo Rosati
Railroad Company:  RFI (Italy)
Last Update: June 26 2015
Requires Train Director 3.9

This package covers the majority of the RFI signals: 1220 signal icons, used by 68 scripts. In the package are included 17 trial layouts, which can be used to test the behavior of the various scripts.

The file _Instructions_4.7.pdf includes unpacking instructions and a detailed description of the scripts classification contained in the package.

An excellent collection that has surely required several months of work.


File: Segnali_SBB_1.0.zip
Released by: Paolo Rosati
Railroad Company:  SBB/CFF/FFS (Switzerland)
Last Update: April 27, 2015
Requires Train Director 3.8s

Both System L and System N are simulated, shunting dwarfs included. In the older System L aspects are shown by fixed lights in specific positions, so only 3 speed limits are supported, while the newer System N is able to support every speed limit between 30 and 140 km/h (in 10 km/h steps). Some auxiliary signals are also simulated - speed and departure indicators, dead ends - together with some fake signals needed to simulate the quite complicated System N. I had to invent part of the algorithms, as the official rulebook2 doesn't specify which speed is to be enforced depending on the distance of the next signal and on the speed it enforces.

The file _Instructions_sbb_1.0.pdf includes unpacking instructions and a detailed description of the scripts classification contained in the package.

An excellent collection that has surely required several months of work.


File: Segnali_SNCF_2.0.zip
Released by: Paolo Rosati
Railroad Company:  SNCF (France)
Last Update: November 7, 1025
Requires Train Director 3.8v

This package contains the signals used on the French network operated by SNCF.
Rewrite of version 1 to make it more consistent with the nomenclature of the other packages, with redrawn icons and the addition of violet yard signals.

The included pdf file (in English and Italian) describes the nomenclature and installation instructions for the package. Also included is a simple sample .trk file.
