In his book A Railwaymans Odyssey ,Stanley Hall writes that the internal railway at the Drakelow power stations was so complex that the CEGB had its own power signalbox. What is known about this box?

Above is a link showing the layout at Drakelow. Being a web site that is only concerned with the power station itself the railway operating side of things is not mentioned.
For those that have a copy of Stans book the box is mentioned at the bottom of page 221.
