LMS Route: Rugby to Wolverhampton

Hampton in Arden Station: lnwrhia686a

Close up showing the relationship between the original 'Derby Junction' station  down the line and its LNWR replacement

Close up of image 'lnwrhia686' showing the relationship between the original 'Derby Junction' station ¼ down the line and its LNWR replacement. The signal box that controlled the junction can still be seen with a signal in front and a train passing the box. In front of the bridge at the end of the down platform there can be seen a signal post with two signal arms. The Board of Trade passed a new requirement in 1877 concerned stop and distant arms when placed together on the same post. The requirement laid down that the stop arm must be the higher of the two. Previously the Board of Trade had laid down that the distant signal arm should have a notch cut out of the end giving it a 'fish tail' look.
