LMS Route: Evesham to Birmingham

Evesham Station: mre1338

A 1905 schematic diagram of the signalling at Evesham Midland station

The 1905 schematic drawing of the signalling diagram showing the changes to the goods yard and up loop. This occurred at the Redditch end of the station when the connection was made by a trailing crossover, and to the down main line by a slip point. Bob Essery notes in his book that 'safety points protected the passenger lines from the goods sidings. In addition, as marked on the drawing, a new Eversham North Signal Box was opened and the old signal box was closed. Approval for the work was given by the Board of Trade on 1st September 1905'.
