Primary / Secondary References

Figure 63 is the Little Salkeld track layout, based upon a Midland Railway survey of 1913.

Figure 64 shows the signalling diagram for Little Salkeld, based upon information available for 1955.

Plate 172 is a context view from the north with the Main Building and Booking Office (/scrca/structure-summary/289650) on the left of the image.  It shows on the right, the signal box brought into use on 13 August 1899.  It was of wood construction, measured 16ft 6in x 11ft 6in x 8ft, had a 12 lever tumbler frame and a renewal cost of £230 (W & W Committee Minute No 17176, 18/5/1899).  It was closed on 6 July 1964, but the crossover to the Carlisle side of the signal box and the signals controlling it were removed on 21 July 1963.

Well illustrated is the corrugated-iron oil store or lamp room (/scrca/structure-summary/289760); this was of a Midland Railway design perpetuated by the LMS.

Structure Location Map

Tips: This structure is located approximnately at the centre of the map below at the pointed end of the red marker. To adjust the scale of the map, either click on the [+] and [-] buttons (if Google has displayed these in the top-left corner of the map) or double-click your mouse buttons anywhere in the map area: left button = [+] = zoom-in, right button = [-] = zoom out). To 'pan' (move) the map, hold-down the left mouse button, then move the mouse. To open an information bubble containing brief details of the structure, left-click on the red marker. Please note that the position of the marker is approximate because Google keeps moving the map (yes, really!).
