Name and dates

Avochie Signal Box (1898-1900)

Opened on the Great North of Scotland Railway.


Description

This temporary signal box controlled the east end of Deveron Viaduct. When the line was doubled, the single track viaduct required replacement. In the interim this box controlled the east end of the short single track section over the old bridge.

A new double track bridge was built to the immediate south of the old bridge, the new one carrying two tracks. The old bridge survived for some time, out of use.
