Apart from the SB at Douglas, are there any other signalboxes in the Isle of Man? (inc redundant ones)

Research suggests that there was a second SB at St John's East - Pic on this page - apparently all demolished

Just Douglas..
ND: Why is there a door handle on the inside of my airing cupboard?
MF: Because it's the fire exit from Narnia.

I like David Lynch films. I don't consider incomprehension to be a barrier to enjoyment.

There is the disused gate cabin at Ballasalla.

There was a box at the Douglas end of St Johns with 10 levers (1 spare) controlling the east end points for both the Ramsey and Peel loops as well as the junction points between the two lines. At one stage there was a 9 lever GF at the west end controlling the separate station on the Foxdale branch as well as the junction between the Foxdale and Ramsey lines.

Douglas last week http://www.tillyweb.biz/gallery/dd/douglas.htm. Clearly being looked after. Starters were not in use. Not sure what the ticket office panel does

All the passing loops have lower quadrant semaphore homes operated by individual levers on the pfms. Ballasalla has shunt signals which are presented to the driver in the normal position when at danger and lie flat on the ground when clear. Ballasalla box following.
