Dwarf signals are smaller signals used in low speed or restricted clearance areas. Most signaling aspect systems have a parallel set of aspects for use with dwarf signals that differ from aspects used in high signals. Dwarf signals may have multiple heads just like a high signal, but sometimes dwarf signals use so-called "virtual heads" to save on space and cost. This is where a dwarf signal displays multiple lamps on what would ordinarily be a single signal head creating the effect of multiple signal heads.(Submitted on February 2, 2022, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
