Steeton Station

The closed Steeton Station signal box located by the Up Main line at Steeton and Silsden station. Friday 13th April 1990

 

Steeton North signal box was a Midland Railway type 4d design fitted with a 30 lever frame which was opened on 18th February 1923 by the London Midland and Scottish Railway, replacing an 1870s-built signal box located in the same location. The signal box was renamed Steeton Station on 22nd April 1923 after the closure of Steeton South signal box, and a replacement 30 lever Railway Executive Committee frame was installed in 1940. The level crossing closed on 10th July 1989 having been made redundant by a bridge over the railway, and the signal box closed on 29th October 1989 when signalling passed to Keighley Station Junction and Kildwick signal boxes. The signal box and lever frame remained for a while before the lever frame was moved to the North Norfolk Railway and the signal box was then used as a taxi office until it was destroyed by fire on 17th June 1999
