Douglas signal box

This is the signal box at Douglas station in 1993. It's not there now. 

That's because it was moved several feet forward when the station was remodelled and the carriage sheds behind the box replaced with a bus depot. 

The box doesn't work any more, but at least it can still be enjoyed. And they've put the steps back.

There’s super footage of it on the BBC Train Now Departing series. It had a unique Dutton lever frame. It’s a miracle that any of the Douglas infrastructure survived given the attitude of the then Manx Government.
