Though its basic principles are simple, the details get complex and technical, so are not most people's cup of tea.
This is a lower-quadrant signal, as was standard on the GWR and the former Western Region of BR as it became - this means the arms move to point roughly 45 downwards to give a clear indication to the trains.
In doing so, this also brings the green spectacle lens in front of the corresponding oil lamp to give a visible indication at nighttime.
But getting the EOS 20D camera made it a lot easier to display new photos here, and as a result has rekindled my interest in taking signal photos.
Indeed almost the first subjects I pointed the EOS 20D at were signals at Worcester and Ledbury.
Vintage photos from an organised signal box visit in 1983, before St Marks station was closed, and further shots from shortly prior to the 2008 resignalling.
Includes separate pages for Boultham Junction, High Street, Pelham St Junction, St Marks Station, East Holmes and West Holmes.As an aperitif, therefore, the signal above used to control the northern entrance to Newton Abbot station in Devon, on the ex-GWR West of England main line.Sadly, it was replaced by colour-light signals when the Exeter area was resignalled.The last surviving semaphore signals on Greater London passenger lines.Includes a short video clip of the signals in action when Chiltern and WS&MR trains were diverted to Paddington, and photos of the box from an official visit in July 2010.This site now includes photo pages of signals at: West of England centre where the GWR and LSWR main lines crossed one another.
