And the Box

This is how Fred Lea sees the Broadway Signal Box

Malcolm Temple


  1. Any date for the remaining work at Laverton Loop?

  2. Excellent - it'll be a great asset to Broadway station.

    Does the railway still have the old Exminter signal box, which was moved from its original site a while back, with a view to being rebuilt at Broadway?

    The website which detailed the project still exists (just about): - but I haven't heard anything abut the eventual fate of the box.

    I think the proposed red-brick signal box is the better option for Broadway, frankly - certainly more in keeping with the style of the station. But it would be nice to know that the Exminster box is still in safe keeping.
