Worcester Shrub Hill Semaphores, UK
Author: 37176

I've been refreshing the route via Worcester this week and thought I'd document the remaining semophore signals at Shrub Hill.

I saw a schedule a few years ago stating these would be replaced with colour light signals in 2023. That obviously didn't happen. I heard this week that they will likely remain indefinitely as replacing them comes with expensive issues.

Cheers

Great photos! Looks like an interesting railfan place. Are these recent photos?
Thanks for posting.

Thank you so much for the post. Always enjoy seeing semaphores and active towers. Both have almost disappeared here in the states. Please post more whenever you can.
