Hi guys

My memory is that Dee Marsh Junction had some normally off ground signals for repetitive shunting (replaced when lever pulled). This would have been in the 70/80s but I cant find a diagram, could anyone oblige please?

Morning Mick,
The answer is yes. I've got a copy of CS252/80 Recovery of Redundant Assets (actually abolition of Curve Sidings) but I haven't got any method of putting the plan on the website. There were three ground signals - 61, 62, 63 - associated with the line that ran behind the box. If someone else can post a diagram, then problem solved, but if not then let me know and I'll try a description of where they were.

Normally OFF ground signals was a common feature of ex LMS lines and a few examples still exist.
