Signal Fact 54

The era of the NX (entrance-exit) push button panel started quietly in 1937 with an installation at Brunswick on the Cheshire Lines Railway.

The signal box was small and the installation was hardly noticed by the world at large.

Tottenham & Hampstead Junction Railway (GER, MR)

This page should be regarded as “Work in Progress”. The webmaster will welcome additional information for this page.

In the list below the information is set out in tabular form, spread over four columns. The column entries are -

RailRef The Line Code used in RailRef system.
Line Detail The principal locations included within the Line Code. They are arranged in 'down' direction order. Locations shown are primarily stations and junctions to allow easy cross check against published atlases. Signal box names appear in italics where these are 'intermediate' to stations or have been shown to facilitate links from other pages on this web site. The inclusion of a station or junction name does not imply that there was always a signal box of that same name!
SBR The section reference used in the relevant Signal Box Register published by the Society.
ELR The corresponding Engineer's Line Reference(s). This will be blank for railways that never came within British Railways terms of reference. It will also be blank where British Railways had no surviving responsibility for infrastructure at the time the ELR system came into use.

Mile Post Mileages

Page 44A (dated 1915) of Midland Distance Book gives mile post mileages from 0m00c at Gospel Oak Junction to end of MR maintenance responsibilty at 2m18c (2 chains inside Crouch Hill Tunnel) and continuing in sequence to 3m47c at St Ann's Road.

The continuation page (44B) in Peter Kay's reissue is dated 1919 and shows mile post mileages from St Ann's Road to South Tottenham (T&FG) Junction which match the present Quail / Sectional Appendix figures from Junction Road Junction, datum St Pancras via the low level spur at Engine Shed Junction.

Mile post mileages in 1919 for the section from T&FG Junction to Tottenham North Junction are still shown as from Gospel Oak Junction.
