Apart from being very colourful, there was a wonderful variety of unique configurations and many different styles of former railway companies.
My original aim was not to provide detailed explanations of signalling here.
As a small boy I was often taken out on the Malvern commons, adjacent to the former GWR line from Worcester to Hereford, and I would watch the trains as they went by - steam, of course, in those days - and the signals being cleared for each train and put back afterwards.

Further down I have also provided links to a few other key signalling sites.
If you do want to know more, these are the best places to start looking.
