FARSAP logo  Oakwood Farm Crossing & Goldsborough Signal Box

Oakwood Farm is a User Worked Crossing with Miniature Stop Lights for users and Power Operated Gate Opening to make the road users lazy as they can operate them without getting out of their vehicle.

The geographic location of Oakwood crossing (for there are two) 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.

Remarkably the World War II signal box at Goldsborough still survives, albeit in private ownership and incorporated into the former station building years after it was closed operationally. The section about Goldsborough starts 4 minutes into the video.

The geographic location of Goldsworth signal box and 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.
