Signalling Record Society
We look at the signalling arrangements that were introduced in 2014 to facilitate an increase in the number of North Yorkshire Moors trains that can operate to Whitby.
The geographic location of the station area 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.
