Signal box locations

The request was partially successful.

Dear Network Rail Limited,

Your website currently supplies a spreadsheet listing all extent signal boxes, both managed by Network Rail and preserved[1]. However, this is simply a list of names and some associated historical data, and includes no location data.

Please could you supply me either with a copy of this spreadsheet with location data included, or a separate list of locations with sufficient information to cross-reference it with the published spreadsheet.

I'm not concerned about the actual nature of the location data; either latitude/longitude, OS Eastings/Northings or OS Grid six-digit references will be fine.

We are in the process of considering whether it would be feasible for us to provide the information you have requested as the database you have signposted is no longer in use. To progress your request, we would be grateful if you could confirm whether you would be happy for us to send this information in a different spreadsheet containing location data for Network Rail only signal boxes.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Network Rail,

Dear Mr Goodge,

Thank you for your clarification of 16th August 2013:

“Thanks for your response. Yes, a listing of only Network Rail signalboxes would be fine.”

Network Rail is not covered by the Freedom of Information Act, so we don’t deal with requests in the same way as bodies which are. Nevertheless, our focus is on proactively disclosing information as if we were bound by the Act hence we strive to adopt the same principles.

Please find the attached spreadsheet containing Network Rail signal box locations.

Please note, the data attached is current as of 15th August 2013 and is subject to change. Network Rail accepts no liability for inaccuracies as a result.

I hope that this information is suitable to your needs. Should you have any further queries in relation to this please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely,
