fantastic - review by rnk

They've done a lovely job restoring the old signal box next to St Albans City Station in the last few years, and it's well worth a visit - not just for rail enthusiasts but for the whole family. It's not just a window into how the trains were operated in years gone by, it's also packed with large amounts of social history and memorabilia, but above all it's staffed by friendly, knowledgeable volunteers who rescued the building and turned it into a fantastic piece of local heritage. Plan ahead as it's only open about twice a month. [May 11]
