Click to preview The Last Signal Boxes photo book

In October 2010 the last operational Great Western Railway Signal Boxes on the North Warwickshire Line will be taken out of service . This book seeks to capture them in operation and provide a detailed record of their final days . Profusely illustrated with both Colour and Black and White Pictures as well as hopefully informative text .

The book features the signal boxes at Shirley , Henley in Arden and Bearley Junction with lots of interior shots plus the signalmen who had the pleasure of working these boxes , plus also the signals themselves and the trains both normal service and Vintage Trains "Shakespeare Express" that passed them

Remember those far off days when both sets of platforms at Henley-in-Arden (in Black Country dialect: Henley in th'gardin) has station buildings and we got put inside? Used to just stroll over the tracks to the bobby, and always kick off our shoes. Even then one of them would never let you in.
