Indeed, having just looked at the Junction diagrams I had forgotten what the connection looked like and the arial photo which shows the LSW box at Hammersmith misled me by not actually having a junction still in situ in front of the box.

I can probably recognise most signalling installations but not all, and I shall post some here in the hope that others can help.

The first is a ground frame, probably on London Underground, taken around 1994:

Lever descriptions can be read from the original as:
1 - POINTS 6-34
2 - POINTS 1-5
3 - POINT LOCKING - PERMISSION
4 - SPARE

Any thoughts appreciated.

John,

That is Golders Green Depot.

Is this "box" still active? If so, I think it must be one of the last, if not THE last Tyer & Co frame in operation.

Unless YOU know better (as they say) . . .
