Just a reminder to those interested in signalling that the preserved St Albans South Signal box, currently being restored, will be open to the public 10am-4pm Sat 7th and Sun 8th September as part of the national Heritage Weekend.
It is in Ridgemont Road off Victoria Street, close to the SW side of St. Albans City Station.
There will be a small 4mm layout demonstrating signalling principles, both semaphore and colour-light.

See the Events Calender for more detailed information.

Well deserved! To anyone who hasn't taken the chance to visit this exhibit go for it. The stand out naturally is the box, it really is good because although out of system use it's right on a well trafficked main line so needs little imagination to appreciate what the signalmen had to be about.

Whereabouts did you make the impression on the Mayor? I'd suggest using one of the cast iron lever badges on the forehead on the next one...
