Signal box

Response to KMS Railways


I thought I would let you know that I have an old monochrome snapshot of my father standing on the steps of the signalbox. Mostly just the steps but part of the name is shown (Kirbymoors....). The snap must have been taken about 1936/37 as my parents were married in 1936 and Kirbymoorside was my father's first posting after that. I was born there in late 1937 but my parents decamped back to my father's homeland of Northumberland when I was but months old. (It is for this reason that I regard myself as a Geordie despite being Yorkshire born).It is even possible that I may have an old railway timetable of the local train services but I will have to ferret about to check if that is so.
I also happen to have the parish magazine of December 1937 (because my christening is in it)if anyone there is interested.
Regards, T. B Strong
