North Norfolk Railway's signal boxes
Holt Signal box
Holt signal box in 2014
This Midland signal box is a Type 3 and came from the Midland Centre at Butterley near Derby. There was only a top so the base is new. The lever frame came from Steeton Station signal box on the Leeds to Settle line.
The box was at Upper Portland sidings between Pinxton and Kirkby-in-Ashfield between Pye Bridge and Worksop.
The box is now working all the signals and points at Holt.

The the small Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway Hut was from Hellesdon which was just outside of the closed Norwich City station. This came out of some ones garden who had saved it. This box has a ground frame in it.The small box is used when the main box is not in use, just to run round a train using the token.

The North Norfolk Railway
The North Norfolk Railway runs between Sheringham and Holt which is about 10 miles for the return trip. Sheringham is the railways headquarters.
On the other side of the road to the Sheringham North Norfolk Railway station is Sheringham Mainline railway station
which is part of the Bittern Line from Norwich. The North Norfolk Railway own station is the old Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway station with the mainline station being just a short open platform.
The NNR now has a main connection and trains can now cross over the road between the two stations at Sheringham on certain days of the year.
This station Weybourne is a passing place and often two trains will be in the station. Weybourne has the NNR engine sheds and workshops here .
Kelling Heath Park is just a small Halt with trains only stopping by request on the return journey because of the gradient, here.
Holt station is not now were the old station was, as when this part of M&GN closed a road was built on part the old railway bed. Some of the site were the old station was, has also been built on.
The new NNR station at Holt has all new platforms but the signal box and the station buildings and other parts, have been saved from other M&GN stations or built in same way.
