Signal box signs

Postby JackBlack » Wed Aug 29, 2018 8:12 am

Hi everyone,

I have these scraps of etches left over from a Mitchell CM40 GWR signal box kit and I've been using some bits to detail a Severn Models signal box. On one of the frets are two signs, an S in a circle and a T in a square (see image below). I've Googled but to no avail. Can anyone tell me what they are?

I believe the last survivor was on Speech House Road signal box, seen here in about 1962.

Presumably they are hung just below the window on each side so the signalman can lean out and turn them over if there's a problem?
