A certain amount of pleasure is gained from the news that both Lostwithiel and Par signalboxes have gained 'Listed Status' and as such, as buildings they are safe. However without the lever frames and instruments they will not have the same attraction.
Maybe they'll become restaurants though there are already facilities at Par,
With the demise of the boxes we'll miss the semaphores which give an early warning of train movements either from the front or back. Such is progress.
