Nyoni is on the North Coast main line from Durban to Empangeni, 114 kms from Durban. The section from Stanger to Empangeni had semaphores and Van Schoor working until 2001, when it was converted to track warrant. These pictures, provided by Greg Hart are from a road knowledge training video, hence the quality -however they still give a good record of semaphores on this line. This picture shows the station building and signal box in the front of the station buildings. There were 32 levers in the signal box, with Amatikulu and Mandini the nearest signal boxes to the south and north respectively. There was also a remote controlled interloop, Isithebe, to the south.
