Station Names[edit]

A little task for you, Asarlaí (talk · contribs) has been adding Gaelic and Scots names to a lot of station articles. You might like to check them out. I am almost certain that Scots does not appear on any station sign, and Gaelic is appearing at more Scottish station, but I am certain most modified have not been so named. --Stewart (talk | edits)

Adaption of RDTs[edit]

As Redrose says at UKT, we are straying off the original topic. Any adaption of RDTs I've made has been with the intention of improving articles. As it says, any local legend overrides the main legend. I don't see it necessay to have a local legend on the Marden rail crash article as I believe it is clear that the triangles in the diagram refer to the positions of signals, rather than a summit.

Merger proposal involving Giffnock and Whitecraigs[edit]

Hi there, I noticed you'd contributed to one of these articles and wondered if you'd like to chip in with your thoughts regarding a merger of Whitecraigs into Giffnock. The discussion is at Talk:Giffnock#Merger Proposal. Cheers Cabe6403 (TalkSign) 10:53, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

File:Axlecounter.jpg[edit]

Hi Signalhead
I'm busy with upload of a few pics about train protection. There are axle counters too. I don't now which one is the transmitter and which one is the receiver. Maybe you could add notes to the pic mentioned in the title.

Message[edit]

Hi, I just got a message from you saying that I vandalised a page about "Clere School" whatever that is. I may be rather forgetful these days, but I have no recollection of such a thing or indeed editing any page on Wikipedia in any way in the last few years. I think I may have made an edit or two back in the day but with maximum possible respect, responsibility and assurance. I'm not even sure I know how to edit any more.

What's more I am the only user of this computer or indeed this building so I'm rather baffled as to how this error has been made. I only let you know about this because presumably the real vandal has got off without a warning, so please try again.

Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.139.164.164 (talk) 16:50, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) The message was posted at 09:10, 21 June 2009 - well over four years ago. It was directed at the person who at the time was using the IP address 86.139.164.164 (talk), which since it's a dynamic IP address allotted on the fly by BT, was not necessarily yourself - it could have been used by many other people in the meantime. --Redrose64 (talk) 18:39, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

OLD LIVINGSTON RAILWAY STATION[edit]

Hi there, just thought I'd let you know the picture you have on the page for the old Livingston railway station is wrong. The location at the top of the page is correct, but the picture is of an old farm bridge over the railway at Carmondean, which is actually east of the existing Livingston North station and about a mile away from the old station itself.

I used to live there, so sorry if I appear pedantic.

Invention of signal boxes[edit]

You've done a lot of the work on the Signalling Control page so I'm coming to you rather than attempting an edit with conflicting information.

The magazine Backtrack, Vol 30, no.2, p78, the current issue, says that the concept of the signal box was invented by Robert Skeldon, at Portobello East when the junction opened in 1847. He is reported to rigged a counter balancing apparatus from unused track chairs, allowing him to work from his cabin instead operating the points and signals by hand. For this he received a silver medal from the RSSA on 2 Nov 1849, for "a railway signal and method of working it at a considerable distance from the station." Transaction of the RSSA, Vol III, 1851, pp223-4, 249.

This seems sound but is later than the 1844 box on the London and Croydon mentioned on the page. Do you think Skelton deserves a mention somehow?
