You need to know your MDR history for this one, the advertisement below is from a 1960s railway publication, but what is the connection between Forcett Limestone and the Malton And Driffield Railway???

The Barclay tank locomotive that worked Burdale quarry, which was appropriately named Burdale, moved and went to work at Forcetts limestone Company.

Yep, They may also have supplied a second Barclay tank to Burdale, but I have no idea whether the other one was named or not.

So how does this type of signal work exactly ?

Seems similar to one that was at Market Weighton station.

Not sure but looks like a modern electric banner signal shown in the on position. Background colour can be changed.
