Railway Tutorial

Dear Factorians,
I‘m searching for a good YouTube tutorial on rail signals and rail chain signals.

So long,

Somewhat old, but signals haven't changed since then:

There is also a really good one on steam, it is called Rail Signals for Dummies if I am correct. It helped me a lot and is pretty straightforward.

"Artillery laser cannon shotgun uranium explosive turret tanks" would be the greatest thing ever.

There is some very questionable signalling in there. The junctions especially aren't fully signalled

The author does not understand chain signals, the examples show with one exemption how NOT to use them, do not follow this tutorial.

I always recommend https://www.reddit.com/r/factorio/comme ... ts_23_and/ (the reddit post contains links to the actual tutorial in various formats).

Hmm. It worked for me on many occasions. And, if you have simplistic setups, it works surprisingly well, for me at least.
