Product Description

An original and rare train carriage destination board…

Although we are unsure of the actual age of this piece, we believe it could date to circa 1940s/1950s. Made in wood, and stretching over 3 metres wide, this is an impressive piece. The patina is just wonderful. The weathered look and feel to the original paint and the vibrant ‘Gold effect’ writing sits perfectly on the Green backdrop

The board represents four stops for this particular journey, with the board originally gracing the side of a carriage. Destinations; Brighton, Southampton, Bristol and Cardiff…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The sign is good structurally with some surface scars and abrasions. It is a little tatty and dirty in places, yet we feel it simply adds to the authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

The sign would look stunning mounted on a wall in a retail environment or even as a cool talking point in your home
