    Where can I find all the meanings of the signs use along a rail road.

    Like "W" I see this one and Have no idea what it means.

    Iif you're talking about the North American environment then I think it's a whistle sign - ie it's a direction to the engineer to blow the whistle. However if you're talking about Germany it means "Wait".

    Different railroads have different systems. Your best bet would be to acquire rule books for various railroads you are interested in learning about. (Spending money for information?! Unheard of!)
