Hall Royd Junction Signal Box Nameboard

Links to L&YR Signal Box photographs

This is a list of L&YR signal box photographic material located on the Web.

This list shows the full link as some of the sites involved can be fickle, and in the event that a link does not work, it may pay to visit the site to see if the image has been relocated, or indeed there are other photographs that have not been included in this list which may be of interest. The index excludes duplicated shots.

Do check out Terry Tracey's collection of 450 signal box images, including Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway ones.

It is worth noting three generally very good resources: www.flickr.com and geography.org.uk. On the former, I would particularly draw attention to David Ingham's (aka ingythewingy) remarkable collection of photographs and well-researched captions, and his particularly comprehensive set of UK signalling subjects. This is a significant resource and one that deserves further study.

Also the 'Lost Stations' site has some remarkable archival shots - mainly of stations - that I have not seen in print, and is well worth a visit. As is David Hey's site which has a rich archive of 60s material.

I started this page originally as I had two problems: firstly, I was trying to establish the window sizes at the door end of L&YR boxes which have six window frames at the non-door end. I am working on the theory that the two frames are 2'9" at the door end, and not the regular 2'3" - and there is no published data or drawings that gives these dimensions.

Secondly I needed to model an LMS asbestos lamp hut, but having failed to find an actual example in any museum collection or on a heritage railway (wonder why, maybe the Health & Safety people do have a point!), I started to look for photos of signal boxes that included this type of hut. There are not many, but those that show a lamp hut are marked!

It is also apparent how rapidly the remaining boxes are disappearing, and examination of the images does suggest that the all-wooden boxes were not particularly good in terms of their dimensional stability, many showing signs of sagging or twisting before their demise. In fairness, the L&Y tended to erect these boxes on made-up ground, such as on embankments, and it may also be a reflection on the nature of the material used (such as loco ash) rather than a weakness in the wooden foundations buried in the ground. Also the lower set of windows (the ones below the sliding sash windows) also seem to be problematical, many having been boarded over or removed before the final closure and demolition. At Hall Royd, photographs can be dated by the progression of the replacement cladding.

According to the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway Society's Website, there were some 600 route miles controlled by 733 signal boxes and 138 ground frames. There is some way to go with this list! However, for those interested in the full list, the DIRECTORY OF BRITISH SIGNAL BOXES is highly recommended. For just £6.25 you get the entire list of all British Railway signal boxes, including the L&YR lines.

On 26 July 2013 Hebden Bridge made it onto English Heritage's list of 26 signal boxes proposed for Grade II listing. Terry Tracey has a significant resource at www.terrysrailwaypics.me.uk which is national in scope.

Do check out the downloadable 4mm scale L&YR Size 6 brick-based signal box construction kit.
