Liverpool Lime Street signal box contained the last Westinghouse “L” type miniature lever frame in use on Network Rail's London North Western Route.

The geographic location of the signal box 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 lines and icon(s) to reveal what they represent. Increase the scale using the scale selector on the left to separate closely positioned icons.
