Grosmont Station & Signalbox, March 1969
At Grosmont station the old signalbox was still in use between the lines on the left from Whitby, reducing to single track as they enter the station, and the fledgling North Yorkshire Moors Railway to the right, the original "main line" to Pickering and Rillington Junction. There was also a track into the original goods yard that ran immediately to the right of the 'box, which is why it was on such a narrow base in the cramped layout. Passengers (and a dog!) are just leaving the station after the arrival of a train from Whitby. Note the station lighting was by oil lamps here, unlike Ruswarp's gas lighting. March 1969. The signalbox was later demolished and was to be re-used at Grosmont, but eventually the 'box from Whitby was moved to a new site by the level-crossing at Grosmont at the south end of the station. Slide No. 3618.
