Recently rebuilt [at time of photograph] High Street station with extended platforms and the clean looking 5 storey office block. "Magnificent" was the word used in the Great Western Railway Magazine for June, 1930.Power signalling was introduced on May 29, 1927, when the new East Box replaced the former Newport East and Maindee West boxes. It was the first large-scale installation on the Ferreira-Insell system, using miniature four-position levers to set the route and pull off the signals, which were still G.W.R.-type semaphores. Ninety-six levers are provided, 79 of which were required at first.
