signal box & signals

Signal box at Sheffield Park station is on the platform in the 1970s.
When the Bluebell Railway took over Sheffield Park station there was just a ground frame here on the down platform which had replaced boxes the North and South signal boxes. The "Wood Box" was built around this ground frame by the Bluebell railway to look like a London Brighton & South Coast Railway platform signal box. I wonder how many think it is LBSC box?

Two signals at Sheffield Park
This gate box and signal at Sheffield Park station are not in railway use and are part of the Bluebell's very good Museum on this platform. It was the Withyham Gate Box from the railway line between East Grinstead and Tunbridge Wells
The Bluebell Railway was the first standard gauge railways to to be reopened by as a preserved railway in the UK. It ran only from Sheffield Park to the small Bluebell Halt at first. Then for a number of years it ran between Sheffield Park station and Horsted Keynes. Trains then used to run from Sheffield Park to Kingscote.
Trains are now able to run to a new Bluebell station next to East Grinstead main line station, now that the work to clear the Imberhorne cutting is done. The cutting was filled with household waste from East Grinstead, after the line was closed. This now gives the Bluebell railway a mainline connection
