The're fabulous close up photos of Halton Jn. there Dave.

Loads of details revealed for modelling.

 

Did you make into the Locking Room too?

 

 

Kev.

 

Unfortunately not but there wouldn't be much anyway, all electrical by the time of my visit.

 

We also visited Ditton No1, No.2, Ditton PSB (prior to opening) and Runcorn so we were rushing around

Aynho 1981, and Appleford Crossing on a very hot day in 1976. The bobby was not enjoying the heat!

One recent find with a signal box lurking in background.

 

Lost in mists of time how I found myself at Worcester or why a NBR fan was so fascinated by such a signal.

The box is still there. Well certainly in  October 2020 when we were there.

That’s good to see, I don’t get round that way usually, as you can tell.

That picture of Wellowgate - you can see in the background a fish and chip shop, which it was said in the late seventies/early eighties was often visited by an Area Inspector who was single and lived on his own, and that Wellowgate would then get a box visit before/after visiting the chippie. The most visited box in the area!I

Hubberts Bridge (different)

Downham Market (it was a particulary hot and humid day and you can see the back end of the thundestorm I drove through to get here. Had to stop in layby with around 20 others as the rain was that heavy it was hard to see more than a few tens of yards even at 20mph It seems to have bypassed Downham Market though)

I'm told this was the signal box from Dainton Summit, now repurposed as a sailing club at Westbury. And Fairwood Junction in 1978 under some magnificent trees.

Margate

What are you travelling on mr Bruce in the Margate shot? The side of the “unit” appears to have been in contact with something substantial looking at the damage sustained.
