    I was under the impression that Acton Wells has taken over from Bollo Lane, Kew East and Willesden Junction High Level boxes however I'm happy to be corrected on that.

    Willsden Junction High Level went to Upminster IECC.

    Interesting. Did Liverpool St IECC ever control part of the NLL. I thought it did?

    I believe it fringed with Dalston Jn Signal Box. When the NLL was re-signalled that part of Liverpool Street IECC was moved to Upminster IECC. The fringe is now in the Stratford area as I recall.

    I could be wrong and the Goblin line went to Upminster and NLL went to Liverpool Street, but I'm as sure that it is Upminster that got the NLL. Didn't Liverpool Street take over the Lee Valley line from Stratford platforms 11 & 12 upwards?

    Not since the independent P1 and P2 for LO were built. The boundary between Liverpool St IECC and Upminster IECC is on the Channelsea Curve between the junctions.

    A quick look at the Anglian Sectional Appendex confirms that the NNL is controlled from Upminster IECC NNL Eastern and NNL Central Workstations from Stratford Platforms 1&2 to a point approaching Acton Wells Junction whereby Acton Wells Junction takes over to a point approaching Gunnersbury Junction whereby Richmond takes over.

    The Lee Valley Line from Stratford platforms 11&12 comes under Liverpool Street IECC.

    I remember seeing Willesden Junction Higher Level signal box being demolished. Was I think around 2012.
