SKU: WSHSD_2018_1_090 Category:


A detail view of the signalbox at Shepton Mallet (Charlton Road). Photo believed to have been taken in summer or autumn 1962.

Features to note; six fire buckets, two on the verandah are marked ‘S&DJR’ and the other (visible only on high res. version of the photo) is embossed ‘LMS’. Two-mantle gas lamp with pull-cords.

The S&DJR notice on the wall above the lower set of fire buckets is the same as that seen on the Glastonbury signalbox in WSHSD_2015_41_296.
