More information

Background information:
The tool shed is an outbuilding to support the Tenement for the signalman. These sheds were used to store all kinds of tools that the signalman needed to keep his part of the railroad operational.
In the shed was a heavy wooden workbench, tools were present and all sheds were equipped with a wide window in the rear so there was enough light to be able to work properly.

Architectural details:
The tool shed was actually a wooden structure. This was clad with horizontal planks, finished with paint. The tiled roof consisted of what was available in the area at that time.
Doors and windows differ per tool shed. Originally most sheds had two windows in the rear, each divided into six segments. And a door (often a double door) in the front.
Over the years, many of the sheds were adjusted to the wishes of the respective signalman.
The model of the tool shed has one light compartment.
