I was there on 3rd November and there was still a wonderful array of semaphores. Stayed until dusk on that gloomy foggy afternoon and got some wonderful photos.

However, work was clearly progressing fast on modernising the signalling systems. Cables were laid, new LED signals installed and everything apparently almost ready to be put upright and switched on for testing. I said to myself that I have seen the semaphores there for the last time and I'd be very surprised if they were still in use in a few months time.
