Updated 000204

General use and appearance

The subject miscellaneous signs (danish: mærker og skilte) covers boards, signs and markers used for various indications. Such signs are erected next to the track or affixed to signal or catenary posts. They are usually not illuminated by night. Signs with a reflective surface have been introduced since 1958 and are the most common type today.

For speed restrictions and track barring, speed boards are used. These boards are considered a class of their own.

This section is structured according to the rule periods:
