Thornhill is a surviving London Midland & Scottish Railway Air-Raid Precautions design signal box on the former Glasgow & South Western Railway's main line from Glasgow to Carlisle.
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 icon(s) to reveal what they represent. Increase the scale using the scale selector on the left to separate closely positioned icons.
