District Line signal box from the 1920s


Footage filmed by BBC London shows the signal box at Edgware Road station dates back to the 1920s.

Signal failures, a generic term that is used by London Underground, can still cause delays and problems on the District Line.

The District Line upgrade is not due to be completed until 2016.
