Description

This 1942 box was opened further east than Dalanraoch Box [1st] which it replaced. Edendon Signal Box opened further west around the same time, the alterations reducing the length of sections. This box was three quarters of a mile east of the first box.

The box closed in 1966 when the line was singled. It was replaced by a third box of the same name, Dalanraoch Signal Box [3rd], controlling a loop which was located a mile to the west (ie a quarter of a mile west of the original box).
