In this video we trip southwards over the East Coast Main Line visiting all the level crossings on the way. Included in the video is an explanation of the MCB(OD) type crossings installed at a number of locations. MCB(OD) stands for Manual Crossing Barrier (Obstacle Detection). These crossings are lonitored by signallers but essentially work automatically with radar systems used to prove the crossing clear before the approach signals will clear.

Viewers are also treated to the career history of Signaller Jamie Brown who has worked a considerable variety of signal boxes at an equally considerable variety of locations.
