Does anyone please have any photos of the Signal Box Diagrams for Fraserburgh and Peterhead?
A search on a well known search engine has yielded nothing showing any reasonable detail.

Hi Mark,

Not a photograph, I'm afraid, but here are details of the layout in case of interest:

Is Peterhead similar to Banff - no loop to run round a train? Gravity shunting for both passenger and goods traffic?

Thanks to Corrour, it is Interesting to note that the terminus at Peterhead did have a crossover at one stage, allowing locomotives to round a train. After it was removed, it looks like gravity shunting was the only option. Meanwhile along the coast at Banff, it appears gravity shunting was standard practice for rounding a passenger train, although the goods sidings included a loop arrangement into the goods shed.
