Biggleswade, Bedfordshire  is an example of one of the earliest designs of Great Northern Railway signal-box and dates from about 1877. It is presumably of McKensie and Holland origin and originally housed a Dutton lever frame and one of this design is still in use in the neighbouring signal-box at Arlesey. Although conventional in design, the rounded tops of the windows give the building a characteristic GNR design. Construction is in yellow brick with wooden structure and slated roof.

This model is O gauge. The dimensions being 100mm wide, 100mm long and 100mm high.
