Railways - 25K OS map symbols
This is one of a series of articles which give photographs of features on the ground which have standard symbols on Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 maps, and also show the symbol. See OS 25K map symbols for introduction to the series, and links to other articles in it. Ordnance Survey have told us that although the symbols are copyright they allow them to be copied without charge or specific licence.
Click on a photo thumbnail to see a page with a larger photo, and other photo details. The photo page also has a section of the 1:50,000 Ordnance Survey map; click on that map to see an Ordnance Survey Get-a-map section of 1:25,000 scale map.
For railways there are only a few differences between symbols on 25K and 50 K maps. See Railway symbols on 50K maps for our examples of the latter.
