Network Rail are carrying out a Life Extension project for Token Machines. Spare parts are becoming in short supply and they are commissioning the manufacture of new parts as necessary. However they have found that certain western region drawings are missing from their archive, nor are the drawings present in that part of the Archive which is held by the Signalling Record Society. These drawings relate to some elements of the machines that were redesigned in the 1960s and later. They are currently looking for number blocks as follows 7899/n; 7901; MA7902/n; 7906/n and 9406/n. but they would be interested in any post 1960 drawings for Token Machines. The M and page size prefix omitted from some numbers as it is believed the /number drawings are a number of different sizes. Network Rail are looking for the original tracings, dyeline prints/photocopies, or digital scans of these missing drawings. If you can help please contact me. Note this appeal will appear on a number of other forums.

On the look out for a number of Ground Signal Posts (roughly 5 or so), preferable GWR/ Western Region pattern for a re-signalling project at a Heritage Railway in South Wales. An exchange of equipment may be possible, as we do have some equipment surplus to requirements.

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?
