Blank Card - Railway Head Codes
Adapted from The Wonder Book of Railways for Boys and Girls, (c.1922). Outlining the system of lamps and discs used on the front of locomotives to identify trains, the book (published before the 1923 railway company amalgamations) explains that ‘every railway has its own system of head codes but there are nine which are used by nearly all with the same meaning’.
