I believe NR and RN are the other way round as it seems that the codes used are from south - north.Edit - Those are pre-upgrade, so I suspect NR is Nuneaton-Rugby, RN is Rugby-Northampton, and CR is Coventry-Rugby. I'm not sure on those, however, the above list is definite.
Yeah, realised that was a stupid question as soon after I asked, hence I removed itYes, the new 'section of route' signal prefix codes have continued to replace the old 'signal box name' prefixes. Many of the new signal codes shown in Quail now cover a greater area than they did when the book was published.
No, the codes still identify separate workstations, panels or interlockings.Have you any idea if they'll all go over to one code sooner or later? And there must be a lot of signals (i know when resignalling takes place the nubers are higher) as there is NR6000 hock:
If it works anything like the signals on the Chiltern mainline then the 4 digit number is actually a composite of two 2 digit numbers. The first two numbers will be a prefix relating to the type of signal (ie, everything beginning with 12 might be main aspect signals on the up, everything beginning with 22 might be ground position signals and so on) then the second two digits are just numbers in order as they always have been. Apparently it makes things easier for the signaller as it gives them another way of identifying a train and what needs to be done with it. I might be wrong, but that is how it works on signals controlled by Marylebone IECC and the West Midlands signalling centre.Have you any idea if they'll all go over to one code sooner or later?

I have been told that this is the logicHarbon 1:1005571 said:Just a quick one,
Why are there different signal box codes on the signal plates around Rugby Station?
