There is a crossing gates wheel in this box, which it is hoped can some time be made to work a set of gates for the public to open.

This box is on the platform a Swanwick Junction. The lever frame has been taken out (saved) and is now a book shop.

 

As the name says this railway is all about the Midland Railway. Its main site is at Swanwick Junction, were it has a large collection of steam and diesel locomotives and about four or five signal boxes,and all sorts of bits and bobs.
