Types of signal and their codes

Adam Sayers made this Freedom of Information request to Network Rail Limited

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear Network Rail Limited,

Please, could you provide a spreadsheet for the type of signal connected to their code? Could you include whether the signal is an LED or not and the number of aspects 1,2,3 or 4? If possible could you also provide the additional signal information such as any feather route indicators, or theatre box indicators? The codes for signals are like this example T201 which is three bridges signaling center signal 201. Finally, could I request the information on the trackside location (Ground, Gantry or Post) and what the special features of the signal such as approach control and limited aspect?

Could I request this information from Three Bridges Signaling center, Victoria Signaling Center, London Bridge signaling center, Ashford signaling center, Havant Signaling Center, Chichester Signaling center, Arundel Signaling center, Tonbridge signaling center, and the routes Tonbridge to Ashford International, Ashford International to Lewes, Tonbridge to Hastings?

I have seen other requests as to the location of signals, however, I would only like data about the signals themselves, not their specific location on a route.

This information is requested to aid my personal creation of a route in train simulator including signaling.

Yours faithfully,

Adam Sayers

Dear Network Rail,

Thank you for your response. You have stated that to provide the information would require cross-referencing. I would be happy to do the cross-referencing for documents that can be submitted to me.

Could you please clarify what you mean by 'signal assets'?

The importance of this information to me is as follows:
1. To know the signals that are LED and the aspects of each signal connected with their number and signaling area.
2. Then if possible, the number of feather route indicators on each signal and the signals with the theatre box indicators.
3. Any other information requested, not stated above.

Yours sincerely,

Adam Sayers

This has the assets but does not include the signal number or trackside location. Number has been refused.

Dear Network Rail,

Thank you for sending me most of the information, I fully understand why the trackside location has been refused and why the location of each signal has been refused. The number, I am slightly unsure about as it isn't that technical but has been refused anyway. Thank you for spending time dealing with this request, a very efficient and helpful service.

Yours sincerely,

Adam Sayers
