North America has two dominant cab signaling technologies and by two I mean one that is dominant and another one that is still used.

The timetable-and-train-order system has been replaced by other forms of movement authority, and classification lights are no longer used, although older locomotives still have them. Some railroads (including Amtrak, and New Jersey Transit) still use red marker lights, but most have done away with the extra items and just use the headlight on a trailing locomotive as a marker.

For the younger generation ditch lights on locomotives seem quite common although such a safety feature has only been in use since the mids.

Prior to that time, as many of us remember, a locomotive was equipped only with its center headlight on a short or long hood (or in the case of a steamer, on the smokebox).
