Feather Wait

Class 50, 50007 'Sir Edward Elgar' gets the green light as she waits at Sueston station with an express for the North.
You will see that we have changed the signal here for a two-aspect with feather for those trains departing Platform 3 and crossing over to the down line. The ordinary two-aspect signal that was here has now been moved to control trains departing from the Diesel Depot, of which more next time.
Like the other signals that we have used this one is by Traintronics and was fairly straight-forward to wire up. We had to use two SPDT switches though, one for switching between Red and Green and the other for turning the Feather lights on and off.
Having done this I think that we now need to use a similar signal to control Platform 4 where trains can either cross to the main line or carry straight on into the tunnel and on to Saggy Bottom Halt.
