A comprehensive signal restoration has been completed along the 7.5 mile railway between Peterborough and Yarwell, operated by Nene Valley Railway. The Eastern Region Semaphore which was originally recovered from Drench Drove Station in 1982 is one of the most important and visible signals along the route but has recently been deemed by technicians to be ‘unmaintainable’. Consequently, a financial donation of £11,296 from local construction specialist, the Mick George Group has permitted the necessary upgrades to be completed, allowing for this historic exhibit to safely control the operational railway once again.
