Auction of station name signs

One hundred station name signs are up for grabs in an online auction being organised by ImageRail, based at Kirkby Stephen Station.
The signs are aluminium and date from the late 1990s to the early 2000s.  Roughly half are from stations in the north of England and include Armathwaite, St Bees, Millom, Askam, Harrington, Gargrave and other locations in South and West Yorkshire. Others are from stations in the south west of England.  Most bear the scars of life outside on railway platforms, with bumps and scratches all being part of the character.
A catalogue of the collection can be downloaded from the ImageRail web site -
 The signs will be auctioned, with a reserve of £20 each, and bids are invited by Friday, 26th August.  Those not sold by then will be for sale from the ImageRail shop at Kirkby Stephen Station over the Bank Holiday weekend only, for £20 each.
Other items, including timetables and assorted railwayana, will also form part of the sale, which co-incides with the 'Stainmore 150' event at Kirkby Stephen East.
