Looking through the down section of the overbridge and
showing the BR replacement signal box. The original 1909 Midland Railway signal
box had to be replaced in the 1950s when a freight train derailed and
demolished the signal box. As with many other signal boxes on this and other
sections of the railway around Birmingham, the Water Orton signal box was
closed in September 1969 when the new Power Box at Saltley was opened.
