Note the lower quadrant signal for the MG and the upper quadrant for the BG line on the right of the platform. Also note the shunting 'disc' signal below the MG semaphore. Similar 'discs' exist for the BG line too. Note the counterweights for the signals. The NG station (of Solapur Division of Central Railways) is outside this MG + BG station (of Hubli Division of South Central Railways) premises towards the left of this picture and all the lines come together below the road overbridge (ROB).
