For the short time that we were able to run trains for this Christmas period, Maintenance checks was carried out on all signal lighting circuits, before the Christmas running season began. It sounds an unimportant job, but when that light is the only way for the driver to know when it is safe to go or must stop. Then they are quite important in the winter mouths with low light levels and snow conditions. Our signal lights are well above the standard that is required for signal lighting and are all LED lit, I believe that the Aviemore South bound signal light can be seen from 3/4 a mile away! So more than adequate for braking distances.
