Your opportunity to “Sign the Book”
In past times, Rule 55 required the Fireman of any train detained more than a short time at a signal box to walk to the box and remain there until the train could leave. His responsibilities included ensuring the signalman protected his train with a collar on the lever to prevent it being pulled, and to sign the Train Register Book.
This is your opportunity to do the same. You can also view entries made by others below.
When I click on “Home” I’m redirected to a Sewing and Craft site!
Thanks for such a great site. I am looking forward to referring to it into the future. The photographs, track diagrams, and descriptions of signalling are all very useful and interesting. Keep up the good work!
very enjoyable site, has an ex signalman fetches back many memories of different working practices
Just dropping in to sign the register and ensure the collars have been put on the appropriate levers.
Fascinating site, sent here by the IGG!
Thoroughly enjoyed my visit I look forward to calling by soon. Like the new site.
Good to see the new format. will keep visiting.
Mr. Nick tipped me off to the new coat of paint on the box -- and very good it's looking too (I'm glad you didn't put in uPVC windows though!). Looking forward to delving back in.
Delighted to see the Signalbox is open again!
First time back in a few months. Like the new layout. Look forward to seeing the improved photos. I can sympathise with the work needed, been scanning some of my own photo's. A time consuming process!
This is a great resource for my pre WWI UK layout in N scale. Thank you very much.
I like the redesign. But you used to have some pages on the Malayan Railway ... will they be coming back or is the focus now on British railways in Britain, only? Best wishes
Just picked up about the revamp - looks good and thanks
Standing at Branston Junction Down Starter when you're ready Signalman.
Excellent revamped site John!
Prior to the rebuild of the web site in 2020, a different “Train Register” was in use, which can be viewed here.
