New Home for Sign

Posted by ROB on October 24, 2014 at 7:40 PM

 

The Hammerwich LMS running-in board sign that was found folded in half amongst rubbish at Lichfield City has been given a new home, complete with a frame at Chasewater Country Park.


Although not in the best of condition, the sign is very much an original from Hammerwich Station. We can only assume, it was taken down when the new station signs were put up. It was then taken to the maintenance depot at Lichfield City to be disposed of.


When the ground was being prepared for the new flats to be built, (on the former maintenance sidings), the sign was found buried under rubble folded completely in half. A Lichfield City Station worker claimed the sign and took it home, where it had been in a shed until its sale on eBay earlier last month (Sep 14).

A brilliant find and glad Chasewater could add it to their local collection.
