St Albans Signal Box and Railway Museum

St Albans Signal Box and Railway Museum offers visitors the chance to step back into the world of a Victorian signalman.  Speak to other signal boxes at Harpenden and Napsbury by bells, pull the levers to change the signals and points, take refreshments in the signalman’s garden and watch the friends of Thomas the Tank Engine as they weave in and out of the flower beds.

The museum offers the chance to see film of the signal box in use during the 1970s plus a whole host of railway lamps and equipment for you to handle   All this while 100mph trains thunder past the windows.
