Sometimes one wishes to remove a station platform, for example, but accidentally removes the signal there, costing 2500c to remove and another 2500 to place back again.
Other times, one wishes to remove a bus stop, but clicking it with the delete tool removes a pedestrian or private car. In frustration, one clicks repeatedly, and accidentally removes not only all the private cars and pedestrians, but the stop, a road sign and the road itself. Ditto when trying to remove a sign on a busy street.
These two tools would make these processes so much smoother and easier. I am not very experienced in adding tools. Hopefully ranran or someone else is willing to implement it, but if not, I will.

This would certainly be a useful addition in principle if someone is willing to code it and produce button graphics for it.

Unfortunately I don't think I have time to do it in the near future as it is less relevant to the work I'm doing now. There are a number of GUIs that haven't been updated yet...

And I think this is also useful in the standard. It may be possible to avoid confusion of tool numbers in advance.

I happened to catch sight of this thread again. The tools to remove the signal were provided by standard. However, to make it available, you need to create an icon and update menuconf.tab.
Also, a removal button has been added to the signal info dialog. It is now possible to safely remove a signal from a tile by pressing it.
However, sign is not subject to these and your wishes are only partially fulfilled.

Unfortunately, I found the remove signal button seems to be a bit broken at the moment.
