This gallery records the majority of semaphore signals that were around in Cumbria a decade or so before and after the turn of the century. Semaphore signals and mechanical signal boxes predominate, but the many types of colour light signals are also included, along with level crossings, layouts and operating procedures. The pictures of signalling equipment are grouped alphabetically according to the name of the signal box controlling them. Thanks are due to my friend, local signaller Allan Beck, who has provided me with a wealth of information on signalling in Cumbria.
