Park South

Park South Signal box was opened by the Furness Railway Company in 1883, and controls the adjacent barriered level crossing and movements over Park South Junction. The Junction gives the north access to and from Barrow-in-Furness, as well as a direct route to Dalton Junction avoiding the slower and more congested route through Barrow itself. The signaller here also has a remit over two user worked crossings and a joint (albeit lesser) responsibility with the signaller at Barrow for the safe passage of trains over an Automatic Open Level Crossing (AOLC) used by a nearby works.
