Signalling Record Society
“Ancient and Modern” work side by side at Poppleton. The signal box fringes onto York IECC and has a key token instrument for the now single line to Hammerton. The signaller keeps fit by opening and closing the gates manually for every train.
The geographic location of the station 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.
