This wartime signal box split the section between Dalnaspidal and Dalanraoch Signal Box [2nd]. Dalanraoch box was relocated to Edendon and a new 'Dalanraoch' box provided further east. The relocated Dalanraoch combined with Edendon increased line capacity for additional wartime traffic. The box placed at Edendon was a traditionally styled signal box and was located on the south side of the line with the River Garry behind and below it.
The box was staffed by signalwomen. With the box being in such a remote location accommodation was provided by a grounded carriage next to the box.
Near the site of the box the line, just to the east, crosses from the north bank of the River Garry to the south bank.
The line was reduced to a single track in 1966 but restored to double track in 1978 and remains open.
The box was named for the Edendon Water, a water course which approaches from the north to join the River Garry at Edendon Bridge.
