Name and dates

Harburn Limeworks Signal Box (-1966)


This signal box was on the west side of the line serving a short branch on the east side which curved from east to south east to reach the Harburn Limeworks. Also served was the Torphin Quarry alongside the junction. The branch made a trailing connection and had a trailing crossover. It was a single track line with a short loop at the junction and siding, on the east side, for the Torphin Quarry.

The stub of the branch survived for some years and box closed in 1966. The formation of the branch can still be seen. The main line is still open and electrified.
