A classic shot as a pair of "Twenties" take the Bentinck line, note the smaller arm, No. 20 in the off position. This signal was knocked over in an accident when some wagons derailed whilst coming off the branch towards the box.

 

 

 

 

Not too many years before the box was closed the old Midland Railway style steps were replaced, these pics were taken during that work. The boards were for giving the driver the Bentinck line staff.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

The earlier Signal Box Box Diagram, of note are the semaphore disants (1 & 19) the additional yard sidings, sidings No. 2 off of the Bentinck branch and the trailing connection which explains why Signal No. 6 was in the forward section to Kirkby Summit.
