'Dereham Central signal Box'
(page 1 of 5 on MNR boxes)
The signal box is at Dereham station in 2005.
Dereham Central signal box has been put up here by the Mid-Norfolk Railway. This photo was taken in 2005
The top part of the box is from Stratford Southern signal box were is was on legs over a siding. The levers and the locking frame also came from there. New wooden parts for the lower locking room have been added very well and it looks as though it looked like this. There is even the rack ready for the fire buckets in place. The steps were from another box.
The box is called Dereham Central. Work started around 2000 and there is still some work to do to re-signal the station. This box looks like it has always been here.
Locomotives are often placed on the lines next to the box and this fine box is hiden from view. All of this good work needs to seen.
