St Albans South Signal Box

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.

It's always good to see this sort of thing being done - it can only elevate the railway enthusiast in the eyes of the general public. Not to mention tidying up what would otherwise rapidly become a derelict eyesore.

congratulations to all concerned.

Just been reading/studying the website (I really should have done it earlier). When you see what has been achieved in the time scale it is even more impressive.

Congratulations to all concerned.

I hope all goes well during the visit and that you at the very least get entered - even better if you win an award!

Oh, and belated congratulations on joining the 1000 posts club.

The interior looks superb - I just hope you can keep the taggers out in future

Glad to hear the morons are being kept at bay.

Glad it went well, over a thousand visitors must have been both satisfying and hectic.

Excellent - I hope all goes well for the season.

Looks good john - especially the signal, also nice to know you sorted out the switching for the simulation.

Thanks for the update John, it looks like the gardener(s) have been busy.

Excellent work as ever - I really must make the effort.....

Hi John,

Thanks for the update - it's good to hear that it's all coming together.

Many thanks for the update John, as you say: "other signalling items will prove interesting to look through"

I bet.

Nice to know the NRM are playing ball.

You've certainly come a long way in 9 years - well done all.
