Swindon Panel Box preservation project

Swindon is an original example of a Western Region turn-push type panel, of which there will be none left in a few short years.

Swindon PanelOur obtaining of the panel has been agreed by Network Rail and we are well advanced in our plans to install a simulator to allow the panel to function realistically. The finished product will not only illustrate accurately the signalling equipment, but also accurately demonstrate period railway operation.

All the details of our plans and aspirations are available at our website at www.swindonpanel.org.uk
