FARSAP logo  Oakwood Farm Crossing & Goldsborough Signal Box

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.

Also featured in this video is the WW2 signal box at Goldsborough which still survives in private ownership years after is was closed operationally.

The geographic location of the crossings (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.
