Wilkinstown wrote:Alterations at Goraghwood, on the Dublin/Belfast line, in 1958 saw the provision of a new mainline trailing crossover to the south of the station, a new down outer home, a new up advance starter and extensive track circuiting. The down distant was converted to an automatic colour light signal which would clear when all the applicable down main (semaphore) signals had been lowered. It returned to yellow automatically as soon as a train passed and would not again clear until all the signals to which it applied had been first returned to danger and again cleared. This arrangement was unique on the GNR at the time and as far as I am aware was not repeated in this form elsewhere in Ireland.
Would this type of arrangement have been implemented on British Railways around this time ? If so does it still exist anywhere ?

. . . or maybe L&NER, methinks.
