Wrangaton Signal Box

This signal box was formerly situated at Wrangaton in Devon, where it was taken out of use in the 1960s. Members of the Kidderminster Railway Museum dismantled it in 1994, with the intention of rebuilding it as a working exhibit at Kidderminster. As part of that process, each brick was individually numbered to ensure the exact appearance was maintained when it was re-assembled[1].

The box is gradually being restored to full working order in a project which commenced circa 2005. The box was opened to the public for the first time in June 2015.
