For those who are interested here are some pictures I took of the refurbishment of the windows which I helped put into Reddham Signal Box some years ago.

Amazing how signalling technology some 100-150 years old can still work reliably! Still, the accountants hadn't had everything value engineered in those days.

The worrying thing is that whilst the Forth rail bridge is still in use after being opened in 1890, the Forth Road bridge opened in 1964 has deteriorated to such an extent as to require the Forth Replacement crossing due to open in 2016.

That is even better. As Sparky, I have only seen pictures of Leclanche cells. I am not in the first flush of youth either!!!!

Nice photos Graham,the old stuff always works best!
It never ceases to amaze me how our rail network operates on such a variety of signalling systems, from mechanical semaphore to ERTMS( no trackside signals at all, but information fed direct to the driver's cab console).
Looks like Direct Rail services are hiring diesel locos (usually Class 47's)to Greater Anglia this summer, due to rolling stock shortages.
So watch out for them hauling trains across Reedham swing bridge from time to time (Norwich-Gt. Yarmouth)

Ah memories...I used to drive Class 47's or Brush type 4's as we knew them, and the Brush type 2 out of Kings Cross in the early 70's. There is nothing like the sound of a Brush 4 (exept a Deltic, which I also claim fame to) labouring up an incline....sorry I'm ranbling now  Smile

Fantastic!

How many on here interested in Railways?

I had some rail questions on the quiz last Friday and was surprised to see BlindPugh was an enthusiast

Some of us are into live steam models too. I have a 3/4" Fosen steam lorry which I will get boiler tested when I have finished my boat (the wife said 'that will be never then !')
