After the WR took control of the S&D in 1958, they painted many existing station signs to rebrand them into their own colours. Where those signs were enamelled, the profile of the enamel still shows through as can be seen, especially on the letter ‘E’. Click on any image for a larger view.
You’ll be able to see a wide selection of these signs and many other S&D artefacts in the new secondary main lines museum at Alresford, due to open for the S&D-themed autumn gala on 1-3 October. See more: https://watercressline.co.uk/autumn-steam-gala/
