Zig Zag Railway Signalbox

Zig Zag Railway Signalbox

The small signal cabin on the zigzag line down to Skinningrove was situated under the viaduct before the infilling by shale from Liverton mine creating the embankment which can be still seen. Trains from Carlin How ran down the zigzag and under the viaduct, then reversed by the points shown down to Skinningrove. The signalman is standing by the points lever. The elaborate ironwork on the viaduct is now hidden by the shale embankment.
