For over 150 years Britain's railways have relied on a system of semaphore signalling, but by 2020, all semaphore signals and lineside signal boxes will be gone.

In his previous book, author Allen Jackson covered the GWR lines; here, he continues his journey by providing a pictorial record of the last operational signalling and infrastructure on Britain's railway network, as it applied to the former London, Midland and Scottish Railway (and lines owned jointly with other companies).

This first volume covers the routes of the following companies:

  • Midland Railway
  • Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway
  • Furness Railway
  • Glasgow and South Western Railway
  • North Staffordshire Railway

" There is plenty of interest for modellers, given the generally rural nature of many of the routes and the way that the infrastructure has been modernised where possible, all giving plenty of inspiration that can be dipped into as required. "

" Altogether this is an interesting look at signalling on the ex-L&YR network in the early 21st Century. Soon it will all be gone, replaced by computerised workstations in Rail operating Centres. "
