Signalling Record Society - 50 Years

Welcome - Come on in

Welcome indeed, to the web site of the Signalling Record Society.

The Society maintains and shares knowledge of Railway Signalling and Operation in the British Isles and Overseas. Everything from the present day signalling to the earliest times.

We possess much archive material and have expertise which can assist members in their study and research on these topics. We publish books, photographs and drawings which may be purchased. Modern material is being added to the digital archive regularly and members are able to download some of the digital material free of charge.

Please take the opportunity to explore the site. Navigation links are provided in the bar to your left and more links are conveniently scattered about the pages.

Web Pages & Touch Screens

The pages on this web site are primarily designed for use on a desktop or portable computer with a screen resolution 800 pixels or more in width and in a browser that is compliant with the latest web page standards. The navigation panel on the left side of the page is designed to remain in view regardless of how far down it is possible to scroll and thus provide a quick route to other parts of the web site regardless of where you are on the site. On longer pages a 'scroll to top' arrow will appear automatically on the bottom right hand side of the window as you scroll down.

Several navigation options feature two or more levels of sub-menus which come into view to provide a short cut to some pages when the mouse hovers over the main item. However, touch screen systems do not recognise mouse events and, on such devices you should select the principal navigation button and then select from the additional menus that appear or use the navigation controls within the pages to move further around the site. A Site Map page with links to every page on the site is available if you have difficulty in using the links and/or sub-menus on a touch screen device or other devices with small screens or on an older browser.

Links to pages on other web sites generally open in a new window or tab dependent on your browser's settings to facilitate easy return to our site. Some of this site's pages also open in new windows or tabs.
