Blair Atholl Signal Box

By Dingus
I spotted this old signal box on one of my many visits to Blair Atholl. It sits only a few meters from Blair Atholl rail station.

This shot is one for posterity and I am glad you took it! If photographers do not know all signalling on railways is going to change in the next couple of years. There will be like mobile phone masts along the tracks. They well receive signalling information from control centres based many miles away. That information will be fed to screens on train drivers " desks " as it were, much like SATNAV information on our touch screens in our cars. So train drivers will have mapping information in front of them. So the more shots like this that can be taken these days the better it will be. David

cymru. In my day the country was saturated with signal boxes. Nowadays they are a rarity.
