Hello all, I am on the look out for plans of a Type 21 GWR Ground Frame hut, as our railway is looking to build one to house a new 15 lever Ground Frame. If anyone knows of any around, or know of any Type 21 or similar boxes available for purchase, please can you let me know. Many thanks, Ethan

Token Instruments. The L&BR have a GWR Tyers No 9 EKT machine (apparently complete) and a 2nd one probably the same, but still in bits at the moment. We are interested in perhaps swopping these for a pair of SR-type machines (with the 3-position electric indicator). Can anyone help please ?

Simple request for information please. What was the maximum extent of signal cabling from the box to a remote distant signal? How was thermal expansion dealt with?
