A new introduction to the Scenecraft range from Bachmann is the OO scale Downham Market Signal Box.
Downham Market signal box is on the Great Eastern main line from Cambridge to Kings Lynn. Featuring Network SouthEast livery, this charming Victorian timber signal box was granted Grade II listed status in 2013.
Built in 1881 for the Great Eastern Railway Company, the signal box was granted the status as it is well preserved and still contains its original Saxby and Farmer rocker frame. It still has a timber staircase on the north side and boasts notched bargeboards and window sashes, as depicted on our fully painted and decorated model. The Department for Culture, Media and Sport awarded listed status to 26 signal boxes across the country as part of a joint project between Network Rail and English Heritage to secure the nation's railway signalling heritage.
