LMS Route: LMS Route: Nuneaton to Leamington

Hawkesbury Lane Station: lnwhl149

Looking towards Coventry from the Nuneaton end of the station's short up platform with the sidings on the left opposite the signal box. The signals are fitted with upper quadrant arms, meaning that they move in an upwards arc from the horizontal when in the 'off' position, compared to lower quadrant signals that move in a downwards arc. The reason for this change of design on the LMS was due to a fatal accident some years earlier when a signal having given the right of way could not be raised back to the horizontal 'danger' position to due to snow blocking the travel of the arms.
