LMS Route: Evesham to Birmingham
Broom Junction Station: mrbj156a
Close up image 'mrbj156' showing Broom North Junction Signal Box
which appears to have been taken out of service when the station's signalling
was rationalised to one signal box. The standard MR oblique angled two face
station name board is still in place, yet to be replaced by the single faced
version sited at an angle as seen in image 'mrbj157'.
The two signals near to the camera control traffic destined for either Evesham
or Stratford upon Avon, They are fitted with lower quadrant arms, which are
lowered when in the 'off' position informing the driver the route is cleared
for him to proceed. Upper quadrant signals, which were being introduced by the
LMS, raised their arms when in the 'off' position, a safety feature less
vulnerable to being obstructed by snow or ice.
