Signalling Record Society
Cattal Crossing is both a road crossing and a block post and is located at the western end of the dynamic loop kept when the line was otherwise singled in 1973.
Watch out for the unusual arrangement of the down line signal levers.
The geographic location of the signal box and crossing can be seen on a current OS Map. The map will place this location at the centre of the map panel, roll the mouse over the icon(s) to reveal what they represent. Increase the scale using the scale selector on the left to separate closely positioned icons.
