I went as part of a group of twenty on a specially arranged visit one evening last year. The box itself has been very well restored and in the grounds there are various artefacts such as signals that are controlled as part of a demonstration of how things worked when it was in operation.
The experience becomes more authentic when in the box itself as trains are continually rushing by and the original signal frame, points levers and equipment to liaise with other signal boxes are demonstrated.
Our hosts for the evening were very well informed and very keen volunteers and we all enjoyed the experience very much. If you are interested in trains, this is for you!
