Work is in progress to restore Cromer Box and open it to the public.

 Cromer Box

The last operational M&GNJR signal box was at Cromer, which finally closed when the entire Norwich to Sheringham line was resignalled in June 2000. It still retains its 36-lever frame which dates from 1954. We are working to preserve, restore and convert this listed building as a museum.

Subscription Renewals and Donations

You are invited to renew your subscription for 2015. The amount remains the same at 5.00. There have been a good number of generous donations in the past and the Committee hopes that a similar level of generosity will apply in 2015.

Subscribe/Renew: CRSS Membership Secretary, Merchants' Place. 16 Church St, Cromer, NR27 9ES.

Sponsor a Lever Label and have your name engraved

Each of the levers has a label describing its function  which is engraved in heavy duty plastic and then screwed on to the front of the lever. These were damaged when we took over the box and need renewing. For just 15, a label can be made and engraved - working details on the front; your name (or a name of your choice) as benefactor on the reverse. If you would like to be associated with the renovation work in this way (or would like a friend or relative to be remembered or commemorated), please add this amount to your subscription renewal plus the name(s) to be engraved.

Thank you for you continued interest in Cromer Box!
