SIGNAL AT CROOKWELL

As there are no modelling projects to share signals seem to be always a fascinating topic. On a field trip to Crookwell back in 2004, with good friend Richard Grace, to the extensive remains of the  Crookwell terminus, on the approach stands this very good example what I believe to be a McKenzie Holland tapered timber signal. This one has a few variations especially the counterweight position when compared to say the one at Boorowa. On closer inspection the Crookwell counterweight appeared to have been moved.

    Peter, not uncommon site with the counter balance arm on the side of the post, as against on the rear.

  2. Peter, I have seen one or two other examples where the counterweight is at right angles to the arm, but don’t remember where. I last visited Crookwell about 2009… not sure why I didn’t seek out the home stick to photograph!
    Cheers,
