It’s very interesting visiting the station and the signal box is part of a very picturesque scene. It’s wonderful to see the whole place beautifully restored which is a credit to the volunteers.

Settle station box is open to public on some days and allows a hands on experience with some enthusiastic and knowledgeable volunteers. If you like trains or history of transport, well worth a detour if you are in the area.
