I'm gradually compiling a variety of photos showing many of the uk's signalboxes.

If anyone else has photos they'd like to share with the rest of us please email them to me with a brief description at the link shown on my site and I'll glady include them.

Thanks
Sigman.

Kinda sad to see a magnificent old box like Princes Risborough boarded up like that :cry:

I was always under the impression it was a listed building so I'm rather suprised its been allowed :shock:

Seeing what it looked like before, it is actually better now.

For Network Rail (and the previously Railtrack) don't really care about listed buildings if there in the way they'll just pay the fine of a few thousand pounds and get rid of it.

The Signal Box on the Right that controlled it is now disused

The signal was clearly installed long since the closure of the box.

That may not be 100% true.

The signal head may have been replaced with newer LED but the original may have been there long before. and I think the box that 1288 is on about controled the far victoria lines.

From what I have picked up, a signal that is decommisioned MUST have an 'X' over it to tell the drivers and Guards to dis-regard the signal as if it didn't exist. ;)

My mates been inside that box apparently, (and Ive got an invite to Stockport no.2 at some point in the future :D )
Macclesfield box is really handy from the station, as you can see the train (usually the 90 +mk2s for me) when it passes Congleton, so I can get my camera prepared in time for it's arrival.


Also, I must agree with Seth that the 1288gaj's shunting signal doesn't seem disused, A) Because it looks brand new with LED's & B) Because it's not covered up in any way. Just because it's used infrequently doesnt mean its disused
