Signal Fact 51

When colour light signalling was commissioned at Borough Market Junction in 1926, the overlap on the Down Charing Cross Home signal was just 15 yards - 45 feet against a typical carriage length for 57 feet.

At times of fog, this signal was fog-signalled.

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.

In the GNR Leeds District re-miling exercise of 1897 this section was altered to be zero from Adwick Junction and is shown as such in the GNR Gradient Diagram book. The 1893 OS map also shows mileposts from Adwick Junction! Presumably it changed again later, possibly following the opening of WR004 in 1909.

Logically this line is down from Stainforth Junction to Skellow Junction and is shown that way in the 1960 Appendix.
