Repairs have been completed on a Victorian signal at the St Albans signal box, just in time for the Herts Big Weekend.
The signal had been damaged in Storm Doris, which caused havoc on train and road networks.
The repairs involved installing a replacement arm.
Signal Box Trust chair, Tony Furse, said it was very pleasing to see the signal restored to its former state, and once again fully operational.
The Signal Box, on Ridgmont Road, is due to take part on the Herts Big Weekend, over Saturday, April 1 and Sunday, April 2.
