Replica railway 'Pole route' at St Albans South Signal Box
Replica railway 'Pole route' at St Albans South Signal Box
For many years the electrical connections between signal boxes for communications and to equipment worked by the boxes has been, with a few exceptions, by cables buried in the ground. Previously circuits were carried on open air 'pole routes'. To show how this used to be done, the St Albans Signal Box Preservation Trust was able in late 2016 to arrange for the erection of a short demonstration pole run in the garden of the box. The four poles are seen here from the top of one of our signals.
