Temsford Signal Box
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.

A class 55 Deltic on the up fast at Temsford. Note the up slow is sill showing the old track layout for were Temsford station was. 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.

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, Great Northern and GBRf 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!
