Birkhill Signal Box

The medium to long term development plan for Birkhill is to make it into a Signalled Passing Station. The following is a brief summary & information regarding the history of the plan including an early artist impression in situ:


When Birkhill Station was established, the foundations

for a proposed Signal Box was built,

but was never completed.

 

It was the intent to re-use as much as possible of the recovered  signal box from Inchture Station on the Perth & Dundee Railway, we believe from the 1980’s, most of the parts including the roof are stored within the SRPS storage complex.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The project is still at the design stage, but Signalling posts at either end of the station loop have been erected and drawings of the signal box have been produced:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This artist impression of how the box could potentially look like at Birkhill was published in the 156 addition of Blastpipe:
