Lincoln Railway Station

Post by Graeme Leary » Tue Oct 10, 2017 5:07 am

I had a quick visit to Lincoln station about 3 weeks ago and noted that the track layout there is just about the same as my model layout, ie 4 tracks between the 'main' platform (with the street entrance) and a central platform alongside the outer of these 4 with another track alongside the opposite side of the platform, with another alongside track adjoining another platform. (In my case this track diverges off to a branch line but the scenario is very similar).
There was a large gantry carrying colour/light signals which I assume would have once carried semaphore signals and I wonder if anybody may have a photo when this was the case.
Many thanks.

Try Google "image lincoln central station 1950s" or similar for loads more. Beware confusion with images of St. Marks.
Bachmann A2 to A2/3: from my thread in Model Railways page 56 to 83, also

Hornby A3 to A1/1 Great Northern: from page 84, in resin from page 108.


Apologies for so many missing images - see page 1 for reasons & possible solution.

.... and also beware of many images not of Lincoln, or even of Lincolnshire (including at least one Western Region) soon found via that link. :)

A sensible additional cautionary remark, although most of the image titles and descriptions are clear enough if you take the trouble to read them rather than just assuming that every image is of Lincoln.
