In the normal ' danger' position of the arm, the bell circuit is not completed, but when the signalman desires to warn the driver, he raises the arm, as shown, somewhat beyond the normal position, so completing the circuit. The quadrant plate of the signal lever is provided with an additional notch, for the purpose of retaining the signal arm in the circuitclosing position as long as desired.
