RailRef Line Codes LB

Signal Fact 1

The Regulation of Railways Act, 1889 gave the Board of Trade the power to make & enforce orders in respect of:

block working and interlocking of points and signals on lines carrying passengers, &

continuous brakes on passenger trains.

London, Brighton & South Coast Railway

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.

Milepost Mileages

The LBSCR primarily used the buffer stops at three locations for milepost mileages: Brighton, London Bridge and London Victoria. London Bridge mileages were traditionally measured from the buffers or concourse of the original London & Greenwich station, which later became known as London Bridge 'low level'. For many years these were platforms 8 & 9.

Lewes Main Junction to Southerham Junction is dual miled with mile posts from Brighton and London Bridge via Redhill, the latter being in brackets.

References to a "Lewes Short Mile" almost certainly arise from Railtrack staff not appreciating that the mile post mileages went via the original route through Lewes Friars Walk station and what became the goods sidings. It is, therefore, not a short mile but a 'change of mileage'.
