Passing on the inner circle a couple days back, I noticed R2250 not showing any aspect. Passing by it today, I noticed it was still not showing any aspect. This has got me thinking about two things. When do LUL replace burnt signal bulb?. And what actually is the function of R2250? Im assuming (since I cant remember the starter signal number) it repeats the outer circle starter signal at Farringdon, but whats the point of such a signal when trains all stop at Farringdon?
Any insight/"logic" behind R2250, would be appreciated
Interesting that the photo shows the conductor rail on the platform side!
As far as I can tell, thats because the points crossing from the inner rail to the outer rail, take up the space in the 6 foot meaning the outer (positive) conductor rail cannot be layed away from the platform edge. If you observe carefully, you can see that there are raised board on either side of the positive conductor rail to partially protect any person that falls on the tracks from making contact with the live rail. Either way, the positive conductor rail is only on the plaform side for the length of the points, and then goes back to being away from the platform. Hope that makes sense...
Also, does anyone know the number of the points, I cant seem to remember.
