The Orton Mere Signal Box.

Some months ago the Orton Mere box was set on fire in an arson attack. With extensive damage being caused.

Her are three images showing some of the internal damage.

My thanks to Tim Hobman for all these images.

Since that time a lot of work has been put in to bring the box back into service. Here are three pictures of how work is progressing

As you can see the difference is remarkable.

Now work starts on reinstalling signalling etc.

We are lucky on the railway in that we have many skills and talents across the membership. With members who use them to enhance and improve the railway.

I look forward to posting more images when the box is fully completed.
