Edgeware Road signal box

Edgware Road was opened by the Baker Street & Waterloo Railway on 19 March 1906 fitted with an 11 lever 'B' Styler frame (frame number 52). The box was closed in 1914.

Edgware Road signal box was opened in 10th October 1926 by the Metropolitan Railway. It was built to their Type 4 design and was fitted with a 38 lever Westinghouse 'K' frame (frame number 27). It is, as far as I am aware, still in use.
