Denburn South Junction Signal Box
This photograph was kept in the Aberdeen South Signal Box. It shows the previous signal box, Denburn South Junction, which was opened on 31st May 1914. It replaced the initial Denburn Junction Signal Box, located where the Denburn Valley Railway met the Aberdeen Railway. The photo was likely taken at some point during the 1930s.

Denburn South was a large box, containing a 240 lever frame of which 217 were used. 181 controlled movement to and from the Joint Station and 36 the adjoining goods lines. Three quarters of the operational costs were met by the Joint Station and one quarter by the Caledonian Railway. Aberdeen South replaced this box on 20th April 1947.

(Information taken from 'The Joint Station: Aberdeen Station 1867 - 1992' by Keith G. Jones. This excellent title is available to consult at Aberdeen Local Studies and is recommended for further details on Aberdeen railways.)
