Extended or standard Simutrans? And what kind of signals you are using?

Perhaps a screenshot or savegame would be helpful.

Anyway, distant signals are only in extended. Standard has pre-signals, which often have the looks of real world distant signals, but the behavior is different. Pre-signal will clear only if the next signal ahead will clear too. Otherwise the train will stop at pre-signal. If you put several pre-signals in row, all of them have to be clear at once to let you trains through.
