Rail signals

I really tried but I just can't figure out how do signals work, so I beg you to help me with it. The map is: >>>eNpjYBBgMGZgYGBm5mFJzk/MYWZm5krOLyhILdLNL0oF8jiTi0pT

Hi,
I cant see what you've posted - is it a blueprint? I'm at work at the moment, so cant check it.
But I did find several useful tutorials on youtube, such as
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ZiL7_vfJtQ
or another one recommended recently: https://www.reddit.com/r/factorio/comme ... ts_23_and/

Theres a really easy way to remember signals,

Picture a train coming to an intersection, and on the right-hand-side of that track put a chain signal on every entry point to that intersection, and put a normal signal on every exit from that intersection.

Remember signals always go on the right had side of the track. (and same for stations).
If you want trains going both way, put signals on both sides - remembering to put the chain signal on the entry. eg, so on one side of the track is a chain signal, and the other side is a normal signal.
