Coombe Junction Signal Box was a Saxby & Farmer Type 12b box and was one of two supplied to the Liskeard & Looe Railway and opened in 1901. The independent Liskeard & Looe had their own platform at Liskeard station, situated at 90 degrees to the main line. The line fell away sharply turning through 180 degrees reaching Coombe Junction, where trains had to reverse to continue their journey to Looe. The box originally contained a 26 lever Saxby & Farmer Duplex frame, which was later replaced with a Great Western Railway frame of the same size in 1956. This signal box continued in use until modernisation finally caught up with it and the box was closed on 8th May 1981, the rationalised layout being controlled by two ground frames.
