Route Indicators

(Page 1 of 2)

Worcester Shrub Hill
Signal SH77 is situated at the north end of Platform 2 at Worcester Shrub Hill station. Since there are two possible routes from this signal, a mechanical route indicator is mounted below the semaphore arm. This is of Great Western Railway design and can display either "B'ham" or "H'ford" for the line towards Birmingham or Hereford, respectively. (Photo taken 9 September 2013)

Signal W311 at the east end of Platform 2 at Westbury station has a 'theatre' or 'multi-lamp' type route indicator provided. Consisting of a matrix of lamps, when these are illuminated to form the letter "T", it indicates that a route is set to the Up Trowbridge line. (Photo taken 10 September 2013)
