Signalling Record Society
In this video we feature the signalling life of Peter Hemy who is one of a number of people indulging in a second career in the railway industry after retiring from an earlier career in the wider world. Peter had the advantage of being a railway enthusiast as you will learn when to play the video through.
The geographic location of Haslemere 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.
