L&YR Signal Box diagram books

So far there are four books detailing the signal boxes of the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway, and a fifth which focuses on the Wirral lines of the Merseyrail system. John Lacy of the Signalling Record Society has produced a comprehensive index of the three 'Signal Boxes on L&YR Lines' books and it can be viewed on the SRS Website.
