Davy Buckland wants to learn more about the signal box and Nathaniel Bixby is only too happy to show him the ropes. More
Autumn, 1913. Davy Buckland, a boiler cleaner in the engine shed at the local station, was nineteen when he took a shine to the signalman at the nearby Oakwood Junction. He didn't know much about Nathaniel Bixby, but he recognised a man who could show him the ropes and the isolated signal box where he worked could provide the perfect hideaway for their clandestine games. But in their world two men sharing any love, let alone this kind of love, was a dangerous thing and while the lovers grew bolder and their secret passion bigger, the clouds of war were closing in.
