No. 552.
GLASGOW, 20th August, 1892.

NEW AUTOMATIC STONE SIGNALS AT CRAIG-NA-CAILLEACH, NEAR 6TH MILE POST BETWEEN CALLANDER AND STRATHYRE STATIONS.

In consequence of the falling of stones on to the Line, two new Signal Posts have been erected near the 6th Mile Post.
The Post which carries the Down Signal stands on the West side of the Line, about 52 yards South from the 5¾ Mile Post.
The Post which carries the Up Signal stands on the West side of the Line, about 87 yards South from the 6th Mile Post.
These Signals are connected by a set of wires, and so long as the wires are whole the Signals remain off, but if the wires are broken by the falling of a stone from the hillside, the Signals go to danger, in which case a driver must reduce speed and advance cautiously, sending his fireman forward to ascertain if there is any obstruction on the Line.

To come into operation on Tuesday, the 23rd day of August, 1892.
