Victorian Railways Curve/Speed boards

Home

 Curve boards are a common sight all over the Victorian Railways system and are placed at the entrance to a curve whenever a curve is sharp enough to require a speed lower than the maximum track speed. Before metric conversion curve boards were white with cast iron black numerals. Speeds were shown in MPH and in the early 1980's curve boards became metric (yellow with black numerals) 7 years after the introduction of the metric system. Curve speeds only apply until the train exits the curve. Unlike many other railways, Victoria has never used signs to indicate the maximum speed for a section.
Kit consists of 60 printed boards and 6 square authentic posts made of brass for strength.
