The box had just had new PVC windows fitted in 2004, together with a bit added to the side for the WC or is it a panel linked to the Peterborough Power box .
This box is still in use at Kings Dyke in 2016. It work's the barriers on the main road which is its next to, and also the road crossing at Funthhams lane with CTV.
When the main Peterborough to Whittlesea barriers are closed, there are very long tail backs of cars and lorrys.

The Peterborough to March Railway line
The railway line between Peterborough and March runs from Peterborough railway station and then across the River Nene past the NVR and under the ECML,  past the site of Peterborough East station.
Peterborough East was the main Great Eastern Railway Peterborough  station for this line. This station was closed and all services transferred to the Great Northern Peterborough North station, now called just plain Peterborough.
The railway line heads out of Peterborough to Kings Dyke were there are brick works. There is a signal box at Kings Dyke on the main Peterborough Whittlesea road. The first and only station is at Whittlesea which is still open. There is a signal box called Whittlesea here.
The railway line heads out across the fens to March. At Turves a small hamlet or village there is a signal box called Three Horse Shoes.
The railway station at March is still open and there is a Network Rail Infrastructure Yard on the site of the old Marshalling Yard at Whitemoor.

 This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is on railways but it is not just onthe  trains but all things railways, with photos, which I have taken from the 1970s till now. I take photos of all things railways, steam diesel and electric trains, signal boxes, wagons any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was British Rail when I started taken photos.

This page is about Kings Dyke signal box

Today  names like East Coast, East Midland Trains GBRF and Virgin Trains are just some of the names on the trains. The name on the train does not always mean, thats whos train it is these days. These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos. I also take photos of preserved railways with steam diesel and electric trains.There is lots more to add and I keep taking More photos!
