Signal Box Nameboards

This is our collection of Signal Box Nameboards, some came to the museum many years ago and some since we have been housed in the Heritage Centre.

The Brereton Sidings bx nameboard is in the museum until it is required to be put back onto the box when it is sited at Chasewater Heaths.
