Temsford signal box
This wooden signal box was between Sandy and St Neots on the ECML. Everton gate box was just to the south. This box at Temsford went on 25th July 1976 when Peterborough power box took over this part of the ECML controlling the new colour light signals and points.This box controlled level crossing at a small road. There was a station at Temsford.

The colour lights will soon take over from the old signals, which were still in use while Temsford box was open. Then the HST took over and then over wires came to the ECML.
