Shunting Signals

(Page 1 of 2)

New Cumnock
A two-tier disc shunting signal at New Cumnock. The top disc, when cleared, authorises a shunting movement along the furthest left of two possible routes ahead. The signal is elevated for improved sighting. (Photo taken 27 April 2006)

A group of three disc shunting signals beside the Down Refuge Siding at Laurencekirk. Instead of being stacked one above the other as is more usual, these signals are placed side by side. (Photo taken 23 April 2015)

A yellow disc shunting signal at Greenloaning. The disc's white background is in accordance with the original standard for this type of signal. (Photo taken 19 November 1994)

Stirling North
A yellow disc shunting signal at Stirling North. The disc's black background is in accordance with the later standard for this type of signal. The signal may be passed while in the 'on' position, for a movement into the headshunt. (Photo taken 26 June 1993)

This disc shunting signal at Whittlesea controls movements from the Down Sidings to the Down Main line. The black band and yellow background are the reverse of how a yellow disc shunting signal would normally be coloured. Movements towards the headshunt are permitted to pass the signal in the 'on' position. (Photo taken 31 December 1988, by Stuart McNae)

Motor-operated disc shunting signal number ER27 at Rochester, in the 'on' position. A white diamond sign is superimposed on the face of the signal, which is floodlit. (Photo taken 17 May 2006)
