Victorian Signalling: By Accident or Design? by Peter Fisher

An authoritative insight into the evolution of signalling systems on the Victorian Railways.

Peter Fisher has researched the development of signalling systems overseas, particularly in the UK and the USA, to establish the correlation between overseas best practice and its adoption and adaptation to the Victorian environment. He explores how and why Victoria chose to blend two vastly different philosophies to achieve a cohesive outcome. Additionally, his concern that the VR mechanical signalling was fast disappearing without any published record, led to the research and preparation of the material that forms this publication.
