It was done like this in the original TT game, that you initially start out with semaphore signals, and later build light signals.

you can still switch between both with Ctrl pressed, but you save pressing it in the early game, when you want to have semaphores. Especially in games that start 1920.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Implemented
Additional comments about closing:  This feature has been added in r8151, but is configurable so that each player can choose their settings individually.

i did a patch for miniIN to do this, the year is configurable (to build always light signals just use a date before the starting date)
is so simple that the only bug i noticed is that breaks a little the signal gui of the miniIN by disallowing the player to select the semaphores or the light signals
but with ctrl it works normally
i'll post the diff when i'll find it again
