There is to be a visit to Guildford, Farncombe, Haslemere & Petersfield signal boxes, probably on a weekday in late April. All but Guildford are to close next year. For more details please contact Stuart Hicks by email at


(3) Stuart Hicks is pleased to say that I have been able to arrange a visit to Thames Valley Signalling Centre at Didcot on Friday 3 May.   Time to be agreed and our visit(s) may well be in successive small groups.

In addition please note that attendees will need to bring photo ID and that no photography will be permitted.   There will also be a charity collection beforehand.
