The Signalling Record Society
This video describes the operation of a Tyers No.6 Tablet Instrument and a Tyers Key Token Instrument. Both instruments have been modified to suit the specific operating characteristics of the Kent & East Sussex Railway.
Filming was carried out at Rolvenden and Tenterden Town by kind permission of the Kent & East Sussex Railway.
The geographic locations of the signal boxes can be seen on a current OS Map Rolvenden and Tenterden Town. The map will place the 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.
This video is intended for viewing at a maximum screen resolution of 1920 pixels wide by 1080 pixels high. Please be aware that viewing at a larger size may result in a loss of clarity and a 'grainy' appearance.
