The first part of Birmingham PSB's resignalling has now been completed. The area around Aston seems to have been transferred to WMSCC, from 27th December in public service, followed by the other section to be resignalled over Christmas from Tipton - Soho. Trains seem to be running this morning so presume all has been transferred successfully.

Haven't seen any online maps yet updated to reflect the new signalling. Will be interested to see when the new turnbacks at Smethwick Galton Bridge & Rolfe Street, and Sandwell and Dudley are first used!

The Railcam 'Birmingham' map shows all the new signal berths between Tipton and Soho,
Soho and Perry Barry and Perry Barr to Duddeston.

I am told that extra signals have been provided on the up Soho Road line - presumably to do with the gradient.

Flashing aspects do not apply from the up to P.3 at International - are there any other signals equipped with PRI's that have both flashing and approach controlled routes?
;
In fact it occurs to me that these PRIs are actually superfluous as in essence it doesn't matter which of the divergent routes is being taken, unlike most - are they mandatory in new work where flashing yellows apply to multiple routes?
