Signalling Nov 2017
Our new fixed distant signal located on the extension some 1000m from the signal box. This is a typical S&D twin rail design with S&D finial and L&SWR lower quadrant fittings.
Dave Gilson and David Collins discuss the wiring of the contact box on No.23 signal - 'Single Line to Down Line Up Shunt'.
Will George and Stuart Garner have made several concrete inspection hatches like this for the trench job undertaken in early November.
Steve Page and Dave Gilson lay conduit in the new trench.
Dave Read uses his digger to dig 500m.of trench to house 3 new cables which will bring power and proving to TC E, the banner repeater and the new fixed distant signal.
A brass ring kindly donated to us. These fit around the SR/L&SWR brass release plungers that operate electric locks. We have 4 more in stock but unlike this one will all require re-engraving for our purposes.
