The Keirunga Park Railway signal box with its Westinghouse Brake & Signal Co. Ltd. Style 'L' Power Lever Frame is located at the club track of the Havelock North Live Steamers and Associates, an incorporated society formed in 1985 by a group of enthusiasts who realised that a ground-level multi-gauge track in Hawke's Bay would be an asset to those involved in the hobby of model engineering.
Havalock signal box lever frame has a 35 lever frame that was donated by the New Zealand Railways from Tekauwhata signal box.
The frame shown there is that which was located on the Central line and the siding was located between Holborn and Tottenham Court Road on the site of the closed British Museum station
An outside view of the signalbox with the miniature railway trains present in the station. In the background the signal box can be seen.
More information on the railway can be found at the Railways own web site The Keirunga Park Railway
The Westinghouse Brake & Signal Co. Ltd lever frame with its indicators behind the levers, the 3 glass roundels show the signal aspect, being Red, Yellow, Green reading from bottom to top. This picture was taken at Easter 2005 during an open day at the railway, as can be seen the lever frame is very well presented and beautifully preserved. I am indebted to Michael Betts a member of the Keirunga Park Railway railway for sending me this photograph.

The line is fully signalled with automatic three-aspect colour light signals, with two-position semaphores controlling the Keirunga Park Station area. All turnouts together with the semaphore signals, are controlled electrically by a Westinghouse Style "L" miniature lever frame donated by NZ Railways in the signal box at Keirunga Park. The signal frame was dismantled from Tekauwhata on the main trunk line and bought down to Havelock North and reinstated.
