Name and dates

Oakbank Signal Box (1899-1935)


Description

This signal box was west of Midcalder Junction and controlled the approach to the junction of both the Caledonian Railway main line from Carstairs and the Shotts line.

The box was set back from both lines in the 'V' of the junction with the footpath to the box approaching from the north.

An outlet for the Oakbank Oil Works exchange sidings was to the north of the box, onto the [[Shotts] line.

The box closed in 1935. It was absorbed by the box at Midcalder Junction.

Both lines remains open and both are electrified.
