The signal box closed at the end of 2015 following a major £35m upgrade of signalling in Nottinghamshire as part of Network Rail’s Railway Upgrade Plan, which will see reliability and punctuality of services improved.

 

Once the two year project is completed, signalling for the entire line will be operated from Network Rail’s state-of-the-art control centre in Derby.Tony Rivero, Network Rail’s town planning manager, said: “We are very pleased to be handing over this sign to the people of Bingham so that the signal box and its place in the history of the town can be remembered.”Pictured are from left, Network Rail’s Tony Rivero, Cllr George Davidson, and Town Mayor Tracey Kerry, with the signal box sign at the presentation.
