That's very cool - almost abstract! AND you'll be proud that I think I know what it is... well, I don't know what it's called - but it's on the front of the loco!
John Prior: This is the bottom part of a trackside signal, amber and green are above.
well rendered in selective colouration.
John Prior: Thanks Ayush

A definite prerequisite of being on the footplate was the ability to recognise this rather important colour
John Prior: Yes indeed, better than most motorists smile

Not sure where it is on a train, but it makes you look. Great choice the toning and colour smile
John Prior: No a trackside signal, amber and green above. Thanks Linda
didn't know there was a red light district in York museum. Looks like a Bullied Q class in the background
John Prior: It is always a question of knowing where to look. Thanks Bill
I used to repair these...Good shot,John.
John Prior: I was wondering how many generations of trackside signals there have been? Thanks Frank
It cries out for a colour pop John and you have made a very strong image by doing that.
John Prior: Thank you Brian
"Stop--in the name of love..."
DANG! I THOUGHT I knew what it was. Oh Frank must be ashamed... I'll hear about it later...
HAL 9000?
