Hey All.

When I used to go to Crewe regularly, I passed down Gresty Road almost every day. One thing that kept catching my attention, was that there appears to be a BR Midland Region style signal box inside the Unipart Rail works on Gresty Road.

Wondering if anyone knows where this came from? Or if it was purpose built on the site?

I have attached a photo of the box, taken from a distance.

Thanks

The Signalbox was part of the old BR S&T Training School, and was used by S&T staff from the London Midland Region for fault finding, and installation courses. I went there several times during the 1980's. I think it may have been called Morris Junction??
