Most of the filming took place in a railway station set in Ooty. Signalman 1971 stars Prakash Belawadi, Rajesh Nataranga, and Venkatesh Prasad in lead roles. Rajesh Nataranga, Dimpy Padya, and Venkatesh Prasad are also part of the cast.

Producer Ganesh Prabhu shared, “This is the first film produced by our company, and I have also acted in it. I attended the International Film Festival of Bangladesh, where our film won the Best Feature Film Award. I was thrilled to hear the encouraging feedback from the audience there about our film.”

The film features cinematography by Shekhar Chandru, editing by Suresh Urs, music direction by Ouseppachan, and art direction by Santhosh Panchal. Signalman 1971 is produced by Ganesh Prabhu under the Hindustan Mukta Media Entertainer banner.
