Half-way There!

Last weekend we managed to get almost half of the feathered colour light signals working at Gunnmere Junction, as can be seen in the top photograph, looking north from the station.
The middle photograph gives some indication of the amount of wiring involved under the baseboards and you can now see what happened to much of what was dangling from the control panel in my previous posting.
There are wires here for the feathered signals, the three double aspects (also seen in the last posting) as well as lights for the platform and goods depot. Different coloured wire is obviously essential here but, also, coloured numbered sleeves help us to track the wires from switch to light to power source etc.
Painstaking work but satisfying and, thus far, successful.
In the bottom photograph a Class 37 is seen heading towards Gunnmere from the north with a rake of Yeoman hoppers. The signal the train has just passed is one of the ones that is still to be done .. tut, tut!
