Network Rail's operating strategy for the next 30 years will see the closure of around 800 signal boxes and signalling locations across the country to be replaced by 12 Route Operating Centres. We are attempting to document and record as many of the surviving boxes whilst they are still operational. This is a huge task and whilst we have a good record of the Southern Region we don't have enough material or photographs for other locations.
It is intended to put together a photo feature on our Flickr website and articles will appear in future edition of TRACKS. If you have any photos of current or for that matter closed signal boxes, anywhere in the UK, please email Trevor Roots at firstname.lastname@example.org
