Primary / Secondary References

Figure 72 is a signalling diagram for Lazonby, based upon information available for 1955.

Plate 183 is an elevation image of Lazonby signal box (/scrca/structure-summary/292720).  Brought into use on 18 July 1895, it was of wood construction, measured 16ft 6in x 11ft 6in x 8ft, had a 16 lever tumbler frame and a renewal cost of £212 (W & W Committee minute No 14316, 7/6/1895).  It closed on 25 June 1969.  All ‘down’ side connections had been taken out of use from 29 March 1965, goods facilities having been withdrawn from 2 November 1964.

The concrete chemical toilet near to the signal box is an old LMS design.  The handrails to the signal box staircase are of tubular steel, again to LMS designs.  The brick-built coal bunker was not, as usually, provided by the Midland railway and follows LNWR practice.  The plate layers’ cabin on the ‘up’ platform is a BR standard feature.

The terrace of six workers' houses is seen to the left of the signal box.

The 12,000 gallon water tank (/scrca/structure-summary/292620) of the 1872 proposals is in evidence at the Carlisle end of the ‘up’ platform (/scrca/structure-summary/292580).

Tips: This structure is located approximnately at the centre of the map below at the pointed end of the red marker. To adjust the scale of the map, either click on the [+] and [-] buttons (if Google has displayed these in the top-left corner of the map) or double-click your mouse buttons anywhere in the map area: left button = [+] = zoom-in, right button = [-] = zoom out). To 'pan' (move) the map, hold-down the left mouse button, then move the mouse. To open an information bubble containing brief details of the structure, left-click on the red marker. Please note that the position of the marker is approximate because Google keeps moving the map (yes, really!).
