North Weald Signal Box 22 July 1993

North Weald Signal Box, pictured on 22 July 1993. At this time the line was still operated (at peak times only) by London Underground, but the disused signal box had already been smartened up by the Ongar Railway Preservation Society, as indicated by the improvised sign. There would be no place here now for sprawling bindweed and weeds growing on the platform. As the flagship station of the Epping Ongar Railway, the whole area has been smartened up, and the double track reinstated.
