"All Change!" 150 Years of Rail

Unread postby John Webb » Mon Jan 22, 2018 10:44 pm

Elstree and Borehamwood Museum have just opened a new exhibition about the arrival of the railway in 1868 and the subsequent development of the area, including becoming the British 'Hollywood'

The museum has been converted into a 'station' with considerable detail about the history of the railway with numerous photographs over the years. One large panel deals with the control of trains - ie Signalling, and St Albans South has lent them some signalling and more general items to enhance the display.

The museum is at 96, Shenley Road, Borehamwood, on the top floor of the library building near All Saints Church.
Open Tuesdays to Thursdays, 12noon to 6pm and Saturdays 10am to 3pm, January 23rd to July 21st. Free Entry.

They have interviewed railway workers past and present, but as far as I am aware no signalmen. They would love to speak to anyone who worked Elstree box!
