As an aperitif, therefore, the signal above used to control the northern entrance to Newton Abbot station in Devon, on the ex-GWR West of England main line.

My original aim was not to provide detailed explanations of signalling here.

Though its basic principles are simple, the details get complex and technical, so are not most people's cup of tea.

This site now includes photo pages of signals at: West of England centre where the GWR and LSWR main lines crossed one another.

I have included individual pages for Exeter West (above, right), Exeter Middle, Exeter Central, Cowley Bridge Junction and Exeter City Basin boxes.

Over the years I accumulated a collection of about 2000 railway photos, almost all on 35mm transparencies, though I had more or less stopped taking signal photos in the late 1990s.

I am steadily digitising these and include some of these classic shots on this site (see the Shrewsbury, Worcester, Exeter, Newton Abbot, Taunton, South Wales and West Midlands pages).

The Mecca of mechanical signalling on Network Rail.

As I've, naturally, taken a lot of photos here, including number of vintage shots scanned in from slides, I have now created separate galleries for each of its six signal boxes: Severn Bridge Junction, Abbey Foregate, Crewe Junction, Sutton Bridge Junction, Crewe Bank and Harlescott Crossing.

In my early teens I started travelling around on the railways, and in the summer I would get a week-long rover ticket covering the whole of the Midlands.

I already had a camera by then, so I started to photograph as many interesting signals as I could find.

My grandfather had been a stationmaster in Malvern and our whole family understood trains and signals.
