Snippet Detail

An article on pages 7-8 of the August 1997 edition states that Settle Station Signal Box was moved from its original operational position at 236m29.5c on the 'up' side (this SCRCA Structure) to its current location at 236m36c on the 'up' side (seeĀ SCRCA Structure ID 236390) overnight on 14th / 15th June 1997. The article explains the reasons for the move; describes what was involved; and includes two small B&W photographs: the first showing the signalbox after loading onto a pair of rail-trolley, the second showing the signalbox in its new (i.e. current) location. The article also mentions FoSCL's plan to restore the signalbox and to open it as a museum (all of which which has subsequently happened).
