first official reference to Summers
Street was to be found in Weekly Notice no 6
of 1919 which reported that on 12
February that year, East Perth's Eastern Railway Up Outer Distant Signal was relocated
to the post of the Down Home Signal post of the Summers Street cabin. Nothing unusual in
this, one might think, except for the fact that Summers Street Cabin did not
officially open until opened until 11
Summers Street Signal Box. - This signal box is opened when required.There is no siding accommodation, and crossover roads are not provided."Up" and "Down" Home and Distant signals are provided. The position of these signals when the signal box is closed will be "All Clear".The key of signal box is in the possession of the Station- master East Perth, from whom it must be obtained and to whom it must be returned when the box has been closed.
Any additional information on this signal cabin would be most welcome - please use the e-mail form provided on this page.
