Class 31 401 leaving Westwood Yard with a parcels train in the 1970s with the Eastfield box in the background.
 
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.
 
There was another box open in the early 1970s Walton signal box

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.
 
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!
