Sleaford North signal box when it was open

Sleaford North signal box when it was open. This signal box is to the north of Sleaford at the junction of  the line to Sleaford West and the Sleaford avoiding line . This signal box has now closed in 2014. The level crossing gates here are now lifting barriers.

 

The Sleaford avoiding line is part of the Great Northern and Great Eastern joint line and has been out of use for about the last 20 years. In 2012 Network Rail started work on relaying the avoiding line. Part of the work was replacing the signals and Sleaford North signal box and Sleaford south signal box.

Sleaford North out of use on the 5th of May 2014.

The paint is peeling and it looks a little sad. Lets hope this box can be saved.

Some one has put a sign on the box near the window with a sad face.
