LMS Route: Birmingham New Street to Nuneaton
Nuneaton Abbey Street Station: mrna1932
Schematic drawing of the signalling layout of the second
station prior to the erection of Abbey Street Junction Signal Box. The signal
cabin at this time was a very tall structure (see image 'mrna47') which had an excellent viewpoint over Tuttle
Hill road bridge looking towards Birmingham but this arrangement only lasted a
very few years as by the 1890's this large cabin had been replaced by a box at
Midland Junction which survived until the end of mechanical signalling.
