The Signal Box

Signal boxes are one of the most delightful of shedworking atmospheres and for those of you who like a kind of experience, the place to head for is most definitely The Signal Box run by John Hinson which offers encyclopaedic coverage of anything you could possibly want to know about the subject. Of particular interest to shedworking afficianados will be the photo gallery pages. These document the many variations in signal box architecture around Britain by region, style, contractor and operator. As well as the photos there is plenty of relevant signalling information for each one. "This section is the result of a massive project I set myself in the 1970's," writes John, "to photograph every variation in architecture that existed." Well worth a browse, especially if you like trains.
