Quick question: does anyone have a photograph of this building? I've been lucky enough to buy the Caley enamel nameplate off it - in terrible condition sadly - and a picture would be most helpful. I gather it was a ground-level box, and contained a 24-lever 'dwarf-frame'. My thanks in advance, Michael.
Robert Dey very kindly sent me pictures of both North and South boxes, the latter clearly showing my nameplate, and I can now understand why it has ended up so battered. Unfortuntely we can't publish these photographs on the Forum, as the copyright doesn't belong to Robert, but they have demonstrated a serious error in the Signalling Record Society, Scottish Signal Box Register. This states that Dubton South was only 3 feet high and had a C.R. 'dwarf-frame', the implication being that it was a ground level cabin. Neither of these statements is correct: the photographs prove Dubton South was a standard, full-sized signal box, and an interior view shows the frame to be a normal Stevens type, not a dwarf frame. The S.R.S. have been informed so that the records can be corrected.
