aren't those the escalators which were in the KXSP fire?joea1 said:When was this station last refurbished? It has two sets of stone stairs and one escalator, which goes up - and it's wooden! Plus it still has semaphore signals!
I assume you mean wooden escalators in general rather than the example at Greenford?Julian G said:aren't those the escalators which were in the KXSP fire?
There are quite a lot of semaphores still about really. Infact one line recently had it's semaphores upgraded rather than replaced!taw valley said:so after so after 39 years after steam had finished theres still semophore signals becuse NR havnt been out to replace them

Good question, to be honest, I dont think it would!!!Tomnick said:What's wrong with semaphores? As the man says, it ain't broke, so don't fix it!
In fact, at Barnetby, I wonder if a 'modernised' scheme would be able to handle the heavy volume of traffic as efficiently as the current (largely semaphore) signalling does?
The GOBLIN does indeed still have semaphores, notably heading westbound from Harringay GL to Crouch Hilljoea1 said:
I don't think that it's obligatory for the signal to be replaced for a single reversible line! As for the freight line, it only sees a few services a week from Park Royal/Angerstein/West Ruislip/Calvert, and the odd ECS.
Just wondering, does the Gospel Oak-Barking line still have semaphores in parts?
Or the 11:55 Paddington-Princes Risborough And today, Paddington to Birmingham! Time to ride a Chiltern 168 (which won't whisk me off to wherever the depot is )Royalscot said:The Greenford area sees a half hourly stopper from Paddington, the one Paddington-Banbury train via High Wycombe per day and a batch of ECS movements 'turning for old oak, plus the occasional engineers trains. All it's its pretty low priority.
