The GWR horn is a gangers horn
The black square box marked GWR TRURO what it was for is a mystery?
One of our members has just e-mailed me the following information Actually, there aren't many lines that have bridges above 300. For example, the WCML starts again at 1 from (I think) Rugby, Stafford, Crewe, Warrington, Winwick Junc, Preston and Lancaster. The MML starts again from 1 at Bedford, Irchester, Leicester, Derby etc. In the ELR system they have to be divided into sections to make the numbers unique. LEC1, 2, 3, 4, ... (London Euston to Carlisle) and SPC1, 2, 3, 4 ... (St Pancras to Chesterfield), TJC1, 2, 3 ... (Tapton Junction to Colne). The L&C only gets up to bridge 252. The L&Y main line Manchester to Normanton (MVN) reaches 253 and the MR Tapton to Leeds section (TJC3) reaches 256 at Hunslet.
The only lines I can think of that have bridge numbers above 300 are:London to Birmingham (LEC and RBS) - 321 is Warwick Road O/B, Coventry
Gretna to Glasgow - 321 is between Abington and Lamington
G&SWR route - 321 is north of DumfriesHighland -
321 is at Culloden Moor[there may be others on the Caley]
Many Thanks to Arnold Tortorella and Reg Instone for this information
