John Hinson's superb Home Signal page contains far more comprehensive a knowledge base than I could ever muster, and brilliantly presented.

Further down I have also provided links to a few other key signalling sites.

It has four 'dolls' because there were four possible lines a passing train could be routed onto.

The higher the doll, the more important the route - the second line from the left was the through running line here.

A collection of mainly historical photos from around Greater London.

I have organised this selection into separate pages for the former Great Western and Great Central joint line, Marylebone - Neasden (South) Jct, Acton - Cricklewood, Upper Holloway - Junction Road Jct, various North London Line locations, Camden Jct - Watford on the 'DC lines', and Kings Cross - Finsbury Park.

But getting the EOS 20D camera made it a lot easier to display new photos here, and as a result has rekindled my interest in taking signal photos.

Indeed almost the first subjects I pointed the EOS 20D at were signals at Worcester and Ledbury.

Over the years I accumulated a collection of about 2000 railway photos, almost all on 35mm transparencies, though I had more or less stopped taking signal photos in the late 1990s.

I am steadily digitising these and include some of these classic shots on this site (see the Shrewsbury, Worcester, Exeter, Newton Abbot, Taunton, South Wales and West Midlands pages).

As a small boy I was often taken out on the Malvern commons, adjacent to the former GWR line from Worcester to Hereford, and I would watch the trains as they went by - steam, of course, in those days - and the signals being cleared for each train and put back afterwards.

But if you look more closely you will start to see the unique variations that can sometimes be found even on one signal gantry.
