The Signalling Record Society
Once a familiar site at small country stations, shelters over platform ground frames have largely disappeared. However, a rare and probably now unique survivor is at Hammerton. As is customary in this type of installation, the block instruments are in the ticket office although the only occupant remaining therein is the signaller.
The geographic location of the station can be seen on a current OS Map. The map will place this location at the centre of the map panel, roll the mouse over the icon(s) to reveal what they represent. Increase the scale using the scale selector on the left to separate closely positioned icons.
