This page is a portal to other pages in RailWest which describe in more detail particular aspects of the Signalling of the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway (L&BR). Click here for more general historical details about the L&BR and a Bibliography.

This site is not intended to provide detailed information about the basic principles and components of railway signalling in Great Britain - you should visit The Signal Box for a wide range of background information. The emphasis here is on particular aspects of L&BR signalling equipment and operation, such as the signals and the single-line Electric Train Tablet instruments, and historical details about all the individual L&BR signalling installations.

Much of the L&BR-related material available on RailWest has been derived from research by the author in his capacity as the Corresponding Member on L&BR signalling for the Signalling Record Society and as a member of the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway Trust. Grateful acknowledgement is given to all those who have helped him along the way to record at least part of this aspect of L&BR history.

L&BR signalling is still under research and many questions remain unanswered.
Additional information is always wanted - especially signal-diagrams, locking-tables, signalling instructions etc
and pictures of L&BR signalling equipment and signal-box interiors.
