Signal Box Special Instructions (Shrewsbury - Crewe and Banbury)

David Peters made this Freedom of Information request to Network Rail Limited

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Network Rail Limited,

I am writing to request, if you still hold them, copies of the Signal Box Special Instructions for those signal boxes abolished under the Shrewsbury - Crewe resignalling scheme. I am particularly interested in Prees, Wem and Harlescott Crossing signal boxes, but I understand that many others have been closed along with them.

I would also like to request copies of the Signal Box Special Instructions for Banbury North and South signal boxes.

I am hopeful that, as these boxes have all been abolished and are no longer involved in the operation of the live railway, it will be possible for you to supply these materials as articles of historical interest. Absolute block and mechanical signalling are rapidly succumbing to modernity and it would be nice to preserve some vestiges of past practices.

Yours faithfully,

David Peters
