Foxfield Signal Box and Station
Another photo of Foxfield Signal Box and Station Platform with the water tower just visible on the left. I remember it from the 1950s when the branch line to Coniston was still open. As a young railway enthusiast, I was allowed into the signal box to watch and, on one occasion, allowed to ride on the engine footplate to Broughton in Furness and even to start the engine! None of that "Health and safety" nonsense in those days!
