Very interesting - thanks, Frank. Can you give an indication of where they are, or which lines still have significant amounts of mechanical signalling?

Hello Colin

the oldest in the Part of the former East-Germany and in the South of Germany (Bavaria,Wurtemberg) and the rest sprayed across the country.

For Example in Düsseldorf (Rhine-Westphalia) there are a few mechanical Boxes in Ratingen- Ost and Ratingen-West and in DUS-Reisholz.
