Exeter West Box - open days 2018

Unread postby mewstone » Sat Mar 17, 2018 10:29 pm


We’d just like to let folk know that Exeter West will be open and in operation on all weekends and Bank Holidays in 2018 between Good Friday and the end of September. However, in connection with various special events being staged at ‘Crewe Heritage Centre,’ the box will also be open on the following additional dates: Friday, April 27th, Thursday August 2nd, Friday August 3rd, Friday September 14th, Saturday October 6th and Saturday October 13th.

In total Exeter West will be open to the public and in operation on 65 days in 2018, and we believe that this is way in excess of any other signal box preserved and exhibited in the same way. In fact it is probably more days than some operational signal boxes on ‘heritage’ railways and definitely puts the box back into a ‘Special’ class!
