Signalling and Signal Boxes Along the LSWR Routes
The LSWR section of the Southern Region of BR was the last to retain steam engine workings, until 1967, while the Waterloo-Bournemouth line was being electrified. This meant that semaphore signalling hung on a lot longer too. The LSWR also suffered, in the BR era, in that some of it was hived off to the Western Region and former GWR staff in some cases; however, this too produced unusual signalling solutions. In this volume, Allen Jackson explores this history and more, bringing it to life with a thorough collection of photographs and a wealth of technical detail.
