PLYMOUTH FRIARY "B" SIGNAL BOX

Plymouth Friary "B" Signal Box covered Friary Station and was situated on the Down side of the line, at the entrance to the Station, 461 yards from Plymouth Friary "A" Signal Box and a platform length from the stop blocks.

Closing switch NOT provided.

It was of the LSW 3b type and was opened on July 1st 1891.  It had 45 levers.  It is thought that the crossover between the Middle Siding and the Departure Platform was removed during the Great War.  This possibly also applies to the connection between the Down Siding and the Bay or Loading Bank.  By 1945 sixteen levers had become spare ones.
