Working the part time boxes

Recommended Posts

An operational question that I have been puzzling over.  There were a few signalboxes on the WR which by the early 1960s were only manned as required.  Stobs and Steele Road for example.  From what I can gather these were usually opened for the daily Carlisle-Hawick pick-up goods to shunt the sidings, then closed once it departed.  Question: where did the signalman come from?  Did he travel with the goods, opening and closing each box as required?
