Signalling Record Society - 50 Years

FARSAP logo  Stockport Edgeley No.2

Former Signal Box Lad Peter Snape, now Lord Snape of Wednesbury, was invited back for a refresher at one of the signal boxes he worked in as a youth. Under the watchful eye of the duty Signaller and the Mobile Operations Manager we see Peter operating the block instruments and pulling the levers for part of a shift.

The geographic location of the Edgeley No.2 box can be seen on a current OS Map and Heald Green can be seen here. The map will place the 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.
