Diagrams and dimensions.

Postby David B » Wed Oct 23, 2013 2:32 pm

Can anyone help me with a diagram, including dimensions, of GWR signal lamp(s) circa 1900 to 1920? Actual diagram or directions to a source would be appreciated.

I am also after any images people might have of signals at Bodmin in the 1950s. Again, copies or directions would be much appreciated.

Have you looked in BRJ 10, article by Peter Squibb?

Re Bodmin signals: Pat Garland photographed Bodmin comprehensively in the early 1950s. I think his negatives are now held by Roger Carpenter.

I had prints of most of these in my hands when we were researching Bodmin for the NLG P4 layout in the late 1970s, but I don't think I could put my hands on them right now. However, my recollection is that nearly all of these photos appeared in the long-running series in the Constructor in the early 1980s, plus Les Williamson's scale drawings of all the signals. I think the coverage of the Bodmin signals in that series (both prototype and model) should give you all you need.
