Rossett Signal Box c 1963
Hello Steve, here is another photo for the 'Bygones  Around the Village' Gallery - it's one I remember taking in the 1960s but thought it had been lost. It shows the interior of the the then Rossett signal box with Percy Williams, one of the resident Signalmen standing by the wheel which opened and closed the level crossing gates. I spent many happy hours in that box (un-officially) and learned a great deal about signalling matters from chatting to Percy and his colleagues. Pity the photo is in monochrome as all the levers were distinctively coloured according to their function.
