Description

This signal box was between Carnbroe North Signal Box and Burnhouse Weighs Signal Box. It was on the west side of the line. Just to the east was Orchard Farm. It opened in 1900 (earlier than the north box which opened in 1914).

The box was at the south end of a long loop on the east side of the line from Carnbroe North Signal Box.

A little to the south was the north end of a loop which led to the west side of Mossend Marshalling Yard.

The box closed in 1966, taken over by Burnhouse Weighs box. (The east side loop north to Carnbroe North was lifted.)

The new M8 alignment passes just to the south of the former box.
