SX9064 : Torre Signal Box

taken 25 years ago, near to Shiphay, Torbay, Great Britain

Torre Signal Box.
Torre Signal Box.
Located on the up platform at Torre Station, the signal box no longer controls trains passing through this station, however a group of local enthusiasts have preserved this rather splendid structure. They have retained the lever frame and block instrument panel and with the aid of some electronic wizardry can re-create movements once controlled by this box. As per usual though they have experienced a degree of vandalism over the years and the photographer cannot vouch that the box is still preserved intact.
