Dear Fabiana,

the issue of basic signal types is probably very dependent on the infrastructure manager.

In infrastructure itself it doesn't really matter how much lamps a signal has. But the engineering of interlockings need
to know which lamps any signal has, related to signal aspect and power characteristics. Therefore I had mentioned this
topic already in the IL tutorial.
"The mapping between the aspect and the activated lamps might be done with another genericType but this is currently not
yet implemented."
Making such base types with mapping to aspects in IL/specificInfrastructureManager/genericTypes it would be the best to
number the lamps of a signal from top to down and from left to right to have a common scheme of addressing them.

However, currently no one has yet asked for such information in railML.
