Stockport No.1 Signalbox - signalbox interior
Stockport No.1 Signalbox - signalbox interior
The signalbox shows many of the improvements made in recent years: air conditioning, double-glazing and new diagrams amongst others. The lever frame contains many more "spare" (unused) levers than previously as a result of track and signalling rationalisation since the 1990s. The majority of operational levers are closest to the camera, curiously grouped in a separate frame to the main one. For the corresponding interior of Stockport No.2 signalbox, see: LinkExternal link
