SIGNAL BOX EXPERIENCE
Have you ever thought how a signal box works?
Our railway now offers a number of Signal Box Experiences covering our two operational boxes, one being out in the countryside with no mains electric, water or drains!
See how they work and have a go at controlling the locos & trains yourself.
We have half day sessions in our Embsay Station signal box and full day sessions including Embsay Station & our remote box at Stoneacre.
The experience will include:
- safety briefing
- introduction to the box, its levers and indicators
- get a loco on or off the train at the start or end of the day
- controlling the departure and arrival of at least two trains at Embsay Station
- and at Stoneacre the control of the passing of trains
- membership for 1 year
- certificate of participation
