Image Comments Details
There were never any Signal Boxes or Signal Cabins on the Victoria Line.

When the line opened in 1968 Cobourg Street Regulating Room (as it was then called)
took control of each area as it became commissioned.

All areas were controlled by Program Machines with the provision
for manual intervention by means of Push Buttons for every route.
Control has now been transferred to a new Control Room ( Osborne House )
situated in Northumberland Park Depot
where the signalling is now controlled by computers.
