Description

This signal box was on the west side of the Wishaw and Coltness Railway. It controlled access to Calder Iron Works and Carnbroe Iron Works and replaced both Calder Iron Works Signal Box [CR] and Carnbroe Iron Works Signal Box in 1914.

Carnbroe South Signal Box was opened half a mile to the south. A loop ran along the east side between the two boxes. Also to the south and on the west side was access to the Carnbroe Slag Crushing Works.

Both Calder Iron Works and Carnbroe Iron Works closed in 1921. The Carnbroe Slag Crushing Works survived their closure.

The box closed in 1963.
