Semaphore signals, Helsby railway station
Semaphore signals, Helsby railway station
A nice pair of upper quadrant home signals (the one on the left having two arms, presumably for sighting reasons) controlling access to the block section north of Helsby Junction (i.e., towards Warrington, Manchester, and Liverpool). The signal on the left is on the now lightly used line from Ellesmere Port, while the one on the right is on the main line from Chester, and has been pulled off to allow the 1541 departure to Liverpool Lime Street to continue on its way. Regular services to Liverpool via this route had been reinstated (after an absence of many years) a couple of weeks before this photo was taken.
