Station Signs were
introduced throughout the LMS in the 1930's
in the form of an Aluminium Target shaped
sign on a backing board. These were used
instead of running in boards and as such
were relatively large. They were
originally painted yellow with black letters
& had fragments of glass embedded in the
face to help the signs stand out at night. The ones featuring long
names were made in two parts and were
screwed together at the centre.
On the Station they were
usually mounted on a wooden frame with Cast iron supports.
not as sought after as the Southern Railway
Targets as they are rather difficult to
display and are aluminium rather than
They also do not turn up so often
for sale so making it one of the more
difficult collecting fields.
However if are an enthusiast of the LMS then this might be an area to collect as
prices are quite reasonable with most
selling at around £250 - £750.
