This signal box was at Sandy just to the south of the station on the ECML. This signal box went when Peterborough power box took over this part of the ECML controling the new colour light signals and points. Kings Cross Power Box taking over to the south of Sandy.
 
Sandy signal box was opened in 1874 by the Great Northern Railway. This signal box closed in December 1977 when the Peterborough power box came into use. This part of the ECML, is now the most southernly point of the Peterborough's power box's area. Kings Cross power box takes control just to the south of were this box was from here to London Kings Cross.

List of the Signal Boxes on this site
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,  Virgin East Coast, East Midland trains and Northern 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!
