The South Devon Railway used the contractor Saxby & Farmer to supply their signal boxes.

The only South Devon railway signal box to survive into recent years – unusually for a Saxby & Farmer product it has a stone-built base.

The South Devon Railway became part of the Great Western Railway in 1876.
