For the past two or three weeks we have been busily constructing and wiring the panel of switches that control the assortment of signals and lights at Gunnmere, as seen in the top photograph.
This mass of coloured wires is slowly being organized into looms that feed the various signals as well as the mains supply.
This weekend we managed to get the yard lights, platform lights and the three double aspect signals all working.
These signals can be seen in the photographs above with a Class 20 being held prior to gaining access to the small goods siding while, at the other end of the station, a Class 50 awaits departure with an express for the south.
So, with fingers crossed that we do not get any wires crossed, we hope to have all of the signals fully working during the next couple of weeks.
