Freemans SB - Cambois

Hi all,

Does anyone know the date that the new signalling came into effect at Freemans SB in Cambois, Northumberland?

Previously this was electric light signalling but with changes in flows to and from Alcan and Port of Blyth the majority of signals were replaced with STOP boards (numbered as signals).

Thanks in advance,

The photo below of Freemans SB, taken in 2013, has no signals visible alongside the track (click on picture to go to the larger original):

I have looked at several other photos on the same website; the only one of note is this one in early 2013:

My apologies if this doesn't help!
