THE SIGNAL BOX

OVERSEAS

MALMÖ SIGNAL BOX
Swedish State Railway (SJ)

by John Hinson

The lever frame at Malmö is one of those illustrated on the Power Frames page. Since that page was published, John Batts sent some evocative views he took of Malmö when he visited Sweden in 1956. The pictures simply ooze with 1950s peace and tranquillity; they need no description.

Another view of the interior of the box, taken in 1925 when it first opened, will be found on the page covering power frames.

Many thanks to John Batts for providing these photographs.
