The February 2014 issue of Railway Modeller (Vol 65 No.760) has the first of a new series on "Lever frames, points and signals - Running your railway like the prototype"
The introduction says:
"Tim Rayner shows you how your points and signals can be operated in the traditional manner of a mechanical signal box. In subsequent articles he will cover more complex aspects such as interlocking, and how to construct a fully-functional lever frame using various methods....."
The first article is an outline of the basics, including research, using Churston Junction as an example. He also looks at Highworth (correction), a simple branch terminus. The section titled 'The elements of a signal box' includes pictures of the interior of Yeovil Junction in March 2012. Other parts of the article deal with SB diagrams, facing point locks, lever colours and drawing your own diagram.
There are photos showing the exteriors of Balquidder East, Pensford and Bromley Colliery Sidings, and Scout Green SBs.
The sole reference under 'Further Information' at the end of the article is this site!
