Upper Hutt Signal Photographs

A gallery of Upper Hutt signal photographs. Until 2007 Upper Hutt also controlled Featherston and Trentham so photographs from these stations are included.

I am starting to loose interest so I have inserted a few photos at random. When I am suitably motivated I will fix up this page. I am sure that I have plenty of better photographs.

Permissive

Permissive Working. Intermediate 3117 at Wallaceville is displaying Red/Red as there is a train in the Wallaceville - Trentham section. The Down Departure has been cleared and is displaying Caution. (2005)

39 Shunt signal

Upper Hutt. 39 Shunt & Up Starting From Loop has been cleared for 634 (in loop, behind camera) to shunt Parapine siding. (2005)

Two locos

Upper Hutt. 1602 departs Upper Hutt while 634 waits in the Loop. Because permissive working is not permitted for up trains in the Upper Hutt - Featherston section, 634 must wait for 1602 to reach Featherston. Both shunt signals act as Starters. (2005)
