Coventry Station: lnwrcov1282a

Close up showing the gas lamppost and the ducting used to protect the rodding to the signal and points

This close up of image 'lnwrcov1282' shows the gas lighting employed at the station. It appears to be the same lamppost seen in image 'lnwrcov620' although by now it illuminates the boarded barrow crossing which was absent in the earlier view. The lamp is open presumably after the gas was turned off by hand. To the left of the lamppost stands what appears to be a concrete post which is thought to have been employed as protection. To the right of the lamppost is timber ducting which encased the wires or rodding used to operate the signals or points.
