It has been a familiar sight to passing train passengers for more than 90 years.
Now there is a chance to take a look inside the former signal box at Cromer railway station.
The signal box is one of thousands of hidden places accessible to view as part of next month's Heritage Open Days event.
Built in 1922, the grade two listed building has been painstakingly restored by the Cromer Railway Signalling Society following its closure 16 years ago.
It is the only surviving Marriott signalbox, which is made of reinforced concrete and named after William Marriott who built the line in 1887.
