This tutorial E-book is based on the long-standing experience of teaching railway operations and signalling at TU Braunschweig and other universities and higher vocational training institutions in different parts of the world. It explains the fundamental principles all railway signalling systems have in common. This is done in a generic way that does not focus on specific national solutions. It covers basic elements and terms, principles for safe train separation, interlocking principles, automatic train protection, and level crossing protection. It also contains a glossary with definitions of relevant terms.
