Can anyone tell me what kind of signal I require to signal the following ... LMS ex L&Y or ex LNWR set in the early 30's.
The train has to be brought to a halt on a doubled main line - say on teh up side (ordinary stop signal?) then and has to back in to a siding crossing the other main line (the down side) in the process.
Protecting the down line is easy, stopping the train on the up is easy but telling the driver of the up to "Oi go backwards - and be careful about it you daft begger" is proving a little problematical
I've looked at signalbox.com and railsigns.co.uk and googled like mad but am non the wiser ... the closest I can find is a GWR signal with a couple of holes in it and a Furness railway (?) signal shaped like a bow-tie.
