Angel Road is a junction without a station. The signal box has a 12 lever mechanically interlocked lever frame, and its name comes from the nearby road. We have increase our track capacity here in the last few years as a result of the new Alps line which is beyond fence and runs behind the signal box before joining the other tracks past the signal box.
Signalling in this area is a mixture of semaphore and coloured light all of which is electrically operated and track circuit protected.
