    All I can say is good luck to anyone involved in moving signalboxes and rebuilding them!

    See our website for some details of the one we moved recently from Pinxton (Sleights Sidings East) to Bolton Abbey to be rebuilt as a demonstration signalbox.

    (We've also repaired Embsay thorougly, built one at Stoneacre and move the box from Guiseley to Bolton Abbey) There's a lot of work to do - so ALL THE BEST!

    The demonstration signal box is to be located at Medstead to try to attract passengers off the trains - Keith won't be happy!

    No I do not currently volunteer
    What about Botely on the Eastleigh to Fareham line? Its unused / and local to the MHR, I'm guessing its a SR period box.
