Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway signal survivors:
a survey of the Bala Lake Railway
What makes the Bala Lake unique is its collection of 'one of each' type of L&YR signal. It would easy to dismiss the LNWR miniature ground single as not being part of the George Barnes legacy. However a review of L&YR ground signals by Chris Littleworth in L&YR Focus 76 records that after the L&YR signal department was transferred from Horwich to Crewe in 1922, LNWR ground signals started to be deployed in L&YR territory. It is therefore assumed that the LNWR signal was therefore also swept up in George's Signal collection trip in 1971 to the Bolton area.
