Baltimore and Ohio

Baltimore and Ohio signals can be connected to the Signalist SC1 as in the below diagram. Full signal masts will require one and a hallf SC1s but this is unlikely to be required in most situations, instead the G and H or J and K marker lamps can be connected to terminals G and H without further configuration.

Partial B&O colour position light signal connected to a single SC1

Note that when using the CV38=8 configuration, flashing aspects can be achieved by toggling between the solid aspect and dark. Software such as JMRI will do this automatically.

In JMRI use DCC Signal Mast Decoder for CV38=72, CV38=73 and CV38=67. For CV38=8 use Quad Output for the main head and single output for each of the six marker lamps.
