 This signal box is in Westwood Yard at Peterborough

This signal box is still in use today (2014). This photos above taken in 2010 and  2004 still looks much the same as did in BR days.

 

This is one of the only signal boxes on the ECML that still has signals and points and is still a very busy box. It only works the yard but can be quite busy at times. The Peterborough power box works the main lines.

Nearly all the old signal boxes that are still standing on the ECML only work level crossing gates Eastfield box still does the job it was built for.

New England East Shunting Cabin

This box was opned in 1902 as a shunters cabin in Westwood Yard. Unlike the Eastfield signal box  this cabin was closed on 16th April 1989,  and its points were then controlled from ground levers.

This website isUkrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is a web site 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, and signal boxes like the one on this page. In fact any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was BR when I started taken photos ot heritage railways.

Today EWS, East Coast, Central trains 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!
