Signalling Record Society
Hammerton Road Crossing
An example of a small country lane with a railway crossing that is entirely dependent on the skills of the crossing keeper. It lacks any form of signals or controls and is thus representative of a once common situation.
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.
