Welcome to Instow Signal Box
A short film about Instow Signal Box on the disused Barnstaple to Bideford railway line in North Devon.
Felton Vowler from Bideford Railway Heritage Centre tells us about the history of the signal box, how the single line tokens were used and what trains ran through Instow Station in the past.
This film was made by James Britt and James Stanbury as part of the North Devon Moving Image youth outreach programme. The students used an iPad Air with iOgrapher case and an iRig pre-amp with professional boom microphone.
With special thanks to Felton Vowler for the interview and showing us around the signal box, Peter Christie and the North Devon Athenaeum for the black and white photograph, Jim McCormack for the train music.
This project was made possible with funding from Devon Community Foundation and North Devon Councillors Community Grants - many thanks for your support.
