Station signs across station roads


Recommended Posts

  • RMweb Gold

Hi,

 

This is somewhat difficult to explain but a couple of SR stations had, what is in effect, a large running-in board erected across the road entrance to the station, I think there was one on the Isle of Sheppey.   Were these signs a short lived phenomenon that was rare and soon discarded?

 

Unfortunately finding an image has proved to be difficult.

 

Cheers

I think I see what you're getting at. ISTR there was a photograph of this situation at Allhallows in an issue of Rail Model Digest accompanying an Iain Rice layout design—the design itself was titled "Oldhallows-on-Sea". Unfortunately, I can't access my copy at the moment, but it might be worth checking it out, if you can…

I think the second image on this website shows what you're looking for. http://www.disused-stations.org.uk/a/allhallows_on_sea/index1.shtml

Looks a fascinating place. It strikes me as like a poor man's Severn Beach.

 

The fact that (as seen here http://www.disused-stations.org.uk/a/allhallows_on_sea/index2.shtml) the glass running-in board was still perfectly intact in 1967 - six years after closure - surely testifies that barely anyone either lived there or went there.
