Some really good entries already!

Like a lot of light railways the BWLR doesn't go in for signalling in a big way. However it shares a quirky fact with its near neighbour the Derwent Valley Light Railway in that it has just one signal...

So here is my entry for this month.

of course when I said "this month", I meant quarter! :)

I'm also bucking the trend by including a train! :D

I love the way the driver is hanging out of the cab to see the signal.

He has to do that to avoid bashing his head on the gas regulator... :)

Had that on my fathers T3 (prussian 0-6-0 tender loco.
When going clockwise, everything was ok.
Went round couterclockwise one day and suddenly the loco stopped.
Gas was tuned off.
Turned back on, lit up, went again.
Few laps later the loco stopped and the gas valve was firmly shut.
Driver figure leaned against the gas valve handwheel with his head. (he was standing on the tender)
Each time when entering a left turn, he would slip down on the wheel a bit and when the loco went back onto the straight he pushed the valve wheel round a bit.
He was dismissed on the spot.
