Known to railwaymen as 'location cabinets' these silver boxes are used to house electrical equipment for the signalling system, ranging from track circuit and signal interlocking relays to lineside telephones and the control systems for automatic crossings.
Set 1 includes one double door and one single door relay cabinet.
Railways were one of the first users of the new electrical technology and telegraph, first with overhead cabling, then with ground level cabling, often protected within a pre-cast concrete trunking.
Today almost every major line in Britain has one of these concrete trunking running alongside it, carrying the cabling to connect, power and control signals and telephones.
Sluice Gates are found all over the British waterways network, controlling the water levels in rivers and ponds, allowing water flow into irrigation channels and alongside canals to allow the cut to be drained for repairs.
