Hello John,

your signal box has the GBN diamond sign, this was made before 1919.  Here pictures from the 1912 UK catalog.

This is similar to yours, but with signal

This is yours, the catalog picture shows a other roof but was made with the same roof like the model with signal.

Arne- many thanks, and excellent point about the change in logo. Looking through the Bing catalog reprint book it was also interesting to note that the candle illumination lasted until at least 1928- noting this similar structure in the catalog of that year.
