Come and visit the largest preserved Midland Railway signal box and one of the few preserved boxes that's open to the public and on a mainline railway.
Continuous signalling demonstrations run on the operating floor. Railway videos and slideshow of the restoration are shown downstairs, with many signalling items on display, including single line 'tablet' machines, and other railway-related exhibits.
Working signals, old signs and other exhibits in the garden. Recent Additions: 'Percy' and 'James' now running on their own track; new LED signal demonstration; photo display of St Pancras being adapted for the Eurotunnel traffic.
We suggest you allow at least 1 hour to view the garden and the signal box - no need to book - just come along. Light refreshments are available on open days.
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 & in Ridgmont Road.
