Now freshly painted by Network Rail thanks to the efforts of their makers Daughter, these signs were made by the late Ken Bainbridge at the start of his 46 year Railway career when an Engineering Apprentice. Measuring 50ft long with 2 ft high lettering they were cut out from solid sheet metal using only hacksaw, chisels and file hand tools. They were installed near Tollerton on the East Coast Main Line in 1938 and were seen on 31st October 2022.
