Signal box and railwayman at Grendon Underwood Junction, Buckinghamshire

Signal box and railwayman at Grendon Underwood Junction, Buckinghamshire

Go back to the records from the Grendon Underwood map.
L2516. Photographed looking north in 1905, a Great Central signalman poses for Newton's camera at Grendon Underwood Junction, Buckinghamshire. The junction and signal box were not original features of the London Extension, but were built as part of the scheme that established the Great Western & Great Central Joint Line. The tracks on the left of the picture headed south to link up with the Great Western Railway at Ashendon, from where the two companies ran their Joint Line service into the capital. Note that although the permanent way is ready for traffic, the ballast has not yet been swept evenly over the sleepers.
