Sneaky little signal on the through loop

Hi Jim,

 

I find this image very interesting, two questions, is the position light off in this photo? and can it show 'On' as I can't see the third aperture, only the two 45 degree ones?

If you look closely the main aspect behind the indicator is showing a yellow

 

That’s why it’s a sneaky little signal, obviously from the train on the through it’s far easier to see

I see, I completely missed the main aspect, thanks Jim

You don’t get out enough Simon! ;-o

There’s also another ground mounted main aspect at the far end of the through loop with no friend on the platform line. The platform line signal is round the corner right at the end of the platform. (Bottom of ramp from memory and (I think) also applies to the through line.)

Good luck Monday Jim!

59003 has been glued to the Westbury bulk ballast for the last few weeks, apparently it'll be on it for a while. Much nicer than a 66! I knew a few of our 59s were out at the mo, didn't realise they'd gone to Crewe! The silver one must be 001
