Using Signal Masts
JMRI Signal Mast objects allow you to display prototypical Aspects on signals. For background information, see the Aspect Signaling page.
Signal Masts are configured through the Signal Mast Table. You access this tool from the Tools ⇒ Tables ⇒ Signal Masts menu.
From the table, you can manually set individual Signal Masts to any Aspect that they're
able to display by selecting it from one of the combo boxes in the "Aspect" column.
You can change the settings of a Signal Mast by clicking the "Edit" button in the corresponding line.
You add a new Signal Mast by clicking on the "Add..." button at the bottom of the Signal Mast Table, which takes you to the "Add/Edit Signal Mast" pane.
A Signal Mast Repeater enables one physical (or virtual) signal mast to mimic another signal mast's aspect.
This can be useful in a number of ways:
See the Signal Mast Repeater documentation for more details.
The Signal Mast information is kept in your layout configuration, along with Turnouts, Lights, Sensors, control panel setup etc. To save this information on disk, allowing you to reload it next time you run JMRI, see Loading and Storing Your Work.
For more information on creating and displaying panels, including how to show signals on your panels, please see the Panels pages.
