STATION SIGNS OF THE TIMES


Historic railway station signs, introduced in the early 1950s and removed during the 1970s, are reaching unprecedented levels in value fifty years later. Items once picked up by rail enthusiasts for £5 or often much less, are now changing hands for thousands of pounds, with top famous named examples now showing a five-figure return. Railwayana Auctions UK Ltd offered 91 examples of the British Railways era enamel 'totem' signs at its auction in early March, with examples from London's Paddington and Kings Cross both achieving £14,400 total. Other locations that exceeded expectations were Brighton (£9,480), Penzance (£8400), Bristol Temple Meads (£7,440), Lake Side (£6,000), Darlington (£4,800), West Hartlepool (£4,080) and Royal Oak (£3,840). Full realisations at ukrailwayana.com.




Lord Peter Hendy, Chairman, Network Rail, admires the London terminus examples that were part of the offer in the March auction, together with Railwayana Auctions UK auctioneer Neil Booth. RAUK.
