Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway signalling survivors:
the 1912 home signal

1912 Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway Home signal, Llanuwchllyn, 16 July 2015

Front of 1912 home signal, Llanuwchllyn, 16 July 2015. Note replacement subsidiary arm and painting of the main arm.    Rear of 1912 home signal, Llanuwchllyn, 16 July 2015

In the right had image, note the four sided metal sleeve which has been fitted to the new post, and to which the operating gear has been affixed to. The back light blinder, lamp platform and lamp are not present in the current installation, although there are possible 'spares' on the railway. The subsidiary signal spindle and balance weight appear genuine, but note the corrugated metal arm which is a Bala Lake addition. Note that the main arm also varies from how it would have appeared in LY/LMS/BR days, as the vertical white/black band normally included the metal vertical strap. There is therefore a suggestion that the arm might have been shortened, and the white/black band repainted closer to the post.

Note the white sleeve to which the spindle bracket is attached, and was created when the signal was re-posted      L&YR 1912 signal at Llanuwchllyn, Bala Lake Railway 16 July 2015 showing spindle detail and 'new' sleeve to which it is attached

Lying behind the signal is the original platform. This was not refitted to the new post, as people had a tendency to climb the signal.
