Shunting limits
A rectangular yellow board with a black cross at the top and the words 'Shunting Limit' (or 'S/L') indicates the end of a shunting section. This sign normally also has black and white bands on it, and white lamps attached on both sides (although the words are only on the side towards the station). This is usually provided at class 'B' stations on single-line sections (sometimes double-line) where shunting is permitted on the block section and advanced starters are not provided.
sign is placed 400m to the rear of the first stop signal of the station in lower-quadrant signalling (180m in modified lower-quadrant, upper-quadrant, and MACL systems). A single white lamp may appear through a hole in the sign above the center.
