RESTORATION OF ST ALBANS SOUTH SIGNAL BOX


3 July 2011: Unveiled a plaque to mark the restoration project of the St Albans South signal box, the largest preserved Midland Railway box in the country still in its original 1892 position by a fully functioning and busy main line. It gives visitors the opportunity to go into a signal box, watch modern trains pass outside the windows, and re-live the former days of semaphore signalling.
