More information

Background information:
In the past signals and turnouts were operated locally from a signal box. Since the fifties of the last century, operation of the railway network has increasingly taken place from a small number of key posts where train dispatchers control all elements.
The signal box Hoogezand station T, which was located near the railroad crossing Kees de Haanstraat, was transferred to the Dutch Railway Museum in Utrecht in 1988, where it can still be admired.

Architectural details:
The signal box Hoogezand has a brick ground floor with a top floor made of wood. That floor has many windows so that the area could be properly surveyed.
The saddleback roof has "crossed" roof tiles. The chimney and the staircase of our model are 3D printed. In reality, the staircase was made of cast iron.
