    Hello Lewisner,

    According to the NERA signal cabin register, Shincliffe Bank Top signal box, situated at 4 miles 71 chains and 16 links from Ferryhill No.3 box had a short working life, opening in 1904 and closing in 1911. It had 20 levers.
    Looking at the NLS 25 inch map for 1895 my guess is the closure came about with the abolition of the two refuge setback sidings provided at the location, one on the down and one on the up line.
    With a mile and a quarter 1 in 177 climb to the box in the down direction and a mile and a third 1 in 198 climb in the up direction these do not look like grades to me which normally required banking assistance.

    Well your logic is sound but presumably there was a reason for the Bank Top suffix ?
    The box name has been duly amended and here is Flying Scotsman passing on an express.

    So many good screenshots, - well done all of you.

    I'm now in TANE as well Ken. It's taken me a good while to do it, but finally today I had my main large Norfolk layout and its sessions fully installed into TANE SP3 with no missing dependencies. Now it's all the small fixing and adjustment jobs left to do, but there doesn't seem to be too many of those.

    Ah! The Hawksworth 1600s! Excellent example Ken!

    Shame that those little pannier tanks barely got a chance to work anything before BR hauled them off to Cashmoores and Barry Island. They were extremely useful at Cornish sheds though.

    Interestingly enough, I just bought the new 1649 model from Rapido Trains to add to my layout. That pannier started at St.Phillips Marsh before being sent to St.Blazey where it worked until 1959. From there it was sent to Helmsdale where it spent the last of its days.

    It was also one of the only 1600s painted in unlined green during the early years of BR. Quite an interesting little loco!
