In my early teens I started travelling around on the railways, and in the summer I would get a week-long rover ticket covering the whole of the Midlands.
The higher the doll, the more important the route - the second line from the left was the through running line here.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.I have included individual pages for Exeter West (above, right), Exeter Middle, Exeter Central, Cowley Bridge Junction and Exeter City Basin boxes.The Mecca of mechanical signalling on Network Rail.
As I've, naturally, taken a lot of photos here, including number of vintage shots scanned in from slides, I have now created separate galleries for each of its six signal boxes: Severn Bridge Junction, Abbey Foregate, Crewe Junction, Sutton Bridge Junction, Crewe Bank and Harlescott Crossing.
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.
But if you look more closely you will start to see the unique variations that can sometimes be found even on one signal gantry.
