End in sight for Sussex signalboxes

NEWHAVEN Harbour signalbox is one of three due to close at the end of November as part of the resignalling of the Lewes to Seaford branch (the others being Newhaven Town and Lewes ‘B’).

New signalling has been installed and will be commissioned during a four-day line closure, with trains due to resume on December 2.

Southern Class 313/2 No. 313212 passes the 1886-built signalbox with the 15.53 Seaford-Brighton on September 9 as the MS Côte D’Albâtre stands in dock after arrival from Dieppe.  GORDON EDGAR
