Perhaps I'm dense, but I'm having an awful time figuring this sign out:



Perhaps, "don't put your ear to the rail to listen for the train?"

It is an ADA Compliant Sign for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired.

It means There are Telecommunication Devices for the Deaf (TDDs)available.

Tom,

I would have thought that the Metra site would have some kind of info about their signage, but no luck. While I was responding, several others posted the answer...

Thomas,

It is also used to indicate an "induction loop" for deaf people with a hearing aid (T position) or with a cocleal implant -like me!!!!

Is the sign new to the United States? It has been in use in the UK for many years now. It is usually colored red and white, not blue.
