 Thuxston signal box
 
Thuxston signal box in April 2016
 
Thuxton signal box used to be located to the north of the station platforms in LNER days. This new box is now located to the south of the crossing gates. The old signal box here was removed some time be for 1955. The new box is based on the box at Shippea Hill on the line between Ely and Norwich. It has some of the bits from the box at East Winch. The railway used a ground frame till this box comes into use
 
Below are three photos taken while this box was being built.
 
This signalbox is very good, and every body who helped, needs thanking, for making a top rate job of it.

This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is on railways but it is not just on 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 BR when I started taken photos.

This page is about the Mid-Norfolk Railways new signal box at Thuxton 

Today EWS, East Coast, Central trains and EWS are just some of the names on the trains. The name on the train does not 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!
