Glyntaff

This was my layout project but it bit the dust as a result of a house move. I'd wanted to model it at different periods (before and after introduction of the railcars) so the baseboard was built like a jigsaw so bits could be changed. Unfortunately my wood working skills were not up the the required standard and then bits broke up when dismantling.

The situation below shows the extra engine shed for the railmotors, the loss of the down platform and half the up side one. This is the situation I started with as the earlier one with full platforms on both lines should most likely be modelled when the TVR, rather than the ADR, handled the mineral traffic through here and I rather like some of the ADR locos!

Unclear items include parts of the signalling arrangement, coaling & watering facilities.

An examination of files in the National Archives has answered several of the questions I had, but, not surprisingly, created several more.

In particular can anyone explain the signal by the tank in the illustration below?
All the other signals on the plan are drawn conventionally, so why are these arms on the "wrong" side of the post?
