Waterloo Loop and Courtybella LC

Unread postby Andy Overton » Thu Sep 19, 2013 10:49 am

Waterloo Loop box took over control of Courtybella LC by CCTV on 02/12/1973 and obtained two protecting signals, WL100 and WL200. I would like to know how these signals were operated. I suspect we will be looking at a typical WR arrangement of bog standard switches on the block shelf with repeaters (possibly mechanical arm type) and the CCTV monitors all grouped together. But it's also possible they used KCIs. I've seen no internal photos from the period in question to answer this. Does anyone know what the controls consisted of or does anyone have an internal photo from this time (02/12/1973 to closure of box)?
