John Hinson's superb Home Signal page contains far more comprehensive a knowledge base than I could ever muster, and brilliantly presented.
I have included individual pages for Exeter West (above, right), Exeter Middle, Exeter Central, Cowley Bridge Junction and Exeter City Basin boxes.
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.
A collection of mainly historical photos from around Greater London.
I have organised this selection into separate pages for the former Great Western and Great Central joint line, Marylebone - Neasden (South) Jct, Acton - Cricklewood, Upper Holloway - Junction Road Jct, various North London Line locations, Camden Jct - Watford on the 'DC lines', and Kings Cross - Finsbury Park.
After a number of these explanations had accumulated amongst my pages in wholly ad-hoc fashion, I eventually added a small dictionary of links to photos with captions that explain how particular items of equipment work.
But apart from those I'll leave the technical details to the experts, and concentrate here on sharing some highlights from my photo collection, as well as my reasons for finding a passion for signals!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.Each has its own style of spectacle glass casing too, and see how the rightmost doll is missing its finial!The distant (lower, yellow) arms on the second and fourth dolls are of an unusual pattern that was only found at Newton Abbot - these are operated by motors (the black boxes) mounted immediately behind the arms themselves, a very rare arrangment, and again have a distinctive spectacle glass holder design. The shorter home arm on the very left leads to a lower-grade goods line, and the distant arm on the 3rd doll is fixed to indicate that trains must always proceed with caution when travelling by that route.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.
