Open: 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month St Albans South signal box, built by the Midland Railway in 1892 and abandoned by BR in 1980, was restored by a charitable Preservation Trust and opened to the public in 2009. It is the largest Midland box in preservation and uniquely stands where it actually worked, next to the Midland main line by St Albans City Station. Downstairs there is an exhibition of signalling and other railway items, upstairs the restored frame and replacement instruments show how the box worked shortly before closure. The grounds around the box have been made into an attractive garden area with some working signals and other items on show. Winner of the Invensys Signalling Award (Structures Section) in the 2010 National Railway Heritage Awards and of the St Albans Civic Society top award for 2008. Entry is FREE; we always welcome donations, of course! We are in Ridgmont Road, St Albans – AL1 3AJ, at the bottom of the NR carpark – full location and public open day details on our website.
