SCRCA Structure Type Variants and Related Definitions

Some Structure Types have been sub-classified into 'Structure Type Variants'. This list of these 'Variants' (with associated definitions) has been designed primarily for use by the FoSCL volunteers assisting with the SCRCA Project. The information has been made publicly available as it may be helpful / interesting to anyone viewing the online database of SCRCA material. Default images (where available) for a Structure Variant can be viewed by clicking on the relevant 'Structure Variant' in the left-hand column of the list below.
[Note: The link behind the numbers in the 'Nid' (Node ID) column lead to the base record for the Structure Variant concerned - which is simply the source for the information included in the first two columns of this table. The 'Nid' link has been provided solely to allow System Administrators to maintain the base record. For all other users, clicking on the link will do no harm, but it will provide no benefit either.]

Level Crossing Variants

Structure_Variant------- Variant Description (long) ---Nid
Barrow Crossing

A 'barrow-crossing' at a railway station. These were originally installed at almost all of the stations within the SCRCA to enable station staff and passengers to easily cross the line from one platform to the other. The vast majority of barrow-crossings have been removed for safety reasons.

Other LC

Level crossing for a road, track or path of unknown status, i.e. recent Ordnance Survey Maps do NOT depict it as a Public Right of Way (PROW).

Many of the crossings in this category have been removed for safety reasons, although some remain in use as 'accomodation crossings' (providing access to residential buildings) or 'occupation crossings' (providing access to land for farmers, etc). A few of these crossings may also be public rights of way, although this cannot be determined from recent Ordnance Survey maps.

   5943
PROW (path)

Level crossing for a path that is depicted on recent Ordnance Survey maps as a Public Right of Way (PROW) - i.e. a public footpath or public bridleway. As is stated on the maps: "Rights of way are liable to change. ... Please check with the relevant local authority for the latest information."

   5942
PROW (road)

Level crossing for a road that is depicted on recent Ordnance Survey maps as a Public Right of Way (PROW) - i.e. an 'A' or 'B' road. As is stated on the maps: "Rights of way are liable to change. ... Please check with the relevant local authority for the latest information."
