OPEN DAYS

Come and visit the signal box. We are one of the few preserved boxes on a mainline railway that's open to the public. We are the largest preserved Midland Railway box.

Continuous signalling demonstrations running on the operating floor. Railway videos and slideshow of the restoration running downstairs, with many signalling items on display, including single line 'tablet' machines.

Working signals and other exhibits in the garden.

Light refreshments available.

Entrance is FREE, and donations are always welcome.  The trust is supported entirely by charitable donations.

Postcode for satnav users is AL1 3AJ. We are surrounded by parking at the station and in Ridgmont Road.

The site is fully accessible except for the long flight of steps to the upper floor of the signal box. Accessible toilet and hand washing facilities available on request.
