inno003n. The filming was done shortly after the Bluebell Railway opened as a preserved line, in the film the signal levers are seen behind the actress on the right. They are on the platform, in the open, with just iron railings around them. This was an economy measure from the 1930s. The Bluebell Railway very soon decided that the Signalman needed more protection (from the weather and inquisitive passengers) and built a signal box, in the correct traditional style, around the levers, in the early 1960s. So it is a lot more recent than it looks! Robert Sharp
