St Neots Signal box
St Neots Signal box
The signal box now closed was just to the south of the railway station at St Neots , like nearly all the other boxes on the East Coast Main Line it has now gone. The Great Northern box was of type 1A and of wooden constuction. It was opened on the 20th of April 1898 as St Neots South, to replace an box, which had been made in 1877.
This signal box was named St Neots south, till it took over the control of all of the St Neots station in 1925. This was when the North box was closed. this box, then became just St Noets. It was closed on 10th December 1977. Note the large brick chimney together with a stove pipe for the stove, it must have been a nice warm box
This signal box went when Peterborough power box took over this part of the ECML controling the new colour light signals and points.


The next signal box north of St Noets I have a photo of is Offord

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 Virgin  East Coast, GBRF and Great 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!
