Signal Box Omnibus Telephone Codes

Unread postby MR-ETD » Tue Nov 21, 2017 9:00 pm

Is anyone able to help with the omnibus telephone signalling codes for the line between Chester and Gobowen pre 1970?

I've got the omnibus telephone codes sheets for 1973, 1975 and 1977 that went in the little notice frame by an omnibus phone.

I'm looking in particular for the codes for -
'Rhos Junction' (junction of branch via Rhostyllen to Rhosllerchrugog) Rhos branch closed completely 14th October 1963.
'Johnstown & Hafod' (box closed 17th August 1969 after Hafod Colliery closed the year before - Station closed in 1960)
'Ruabon North' - (junction of Gardden Lodge Junction at southern end of branch from Legacy) Closed ?
'Ruabon MIddle'
'Ruabon South' closed?
'Llangollen Junction' closed ?
'Cefn' closed ?

Also looking for the ETD (Extension Trunk Dialling) telephone number for Bersham signal box as it survived late enough to have had a number off the BR automatic exchange at Chester - ETD code 053 and a number in the 6XXX range. Or any other boxes along the line. My earliest 'BR Telecoms' directories are from the early 1990's.
