RAILWAYANA Auctions UK heads up its next Stafford auction on July 6 with a range of rare BR station totem signs, with important collections being dispersed from the Western, Midland and Scottish regions.

Neil Booth of Railwayana Auctions UK said: “We have an excellent selection of totems, many of which have come in ‘pairs’, and therefore offer a special opportunity for collectors to display the two together. From Birmingham come the pair of Moor Street and Snow Hill; from Northampton come Bridge Street and Castle and from Scotland come Newport-on-Tay East and West – the latter making up a series of five classic in-line Scottish names that also include Dundee Tay Bridge, Tayport and Wormit.

Other BR (M) gems include the classic locomotive shed location name of Woodford Halse, the royally connected Althorp Park and other Northamptonshire gems, whilst it’s an auction debut for South Wales BR(W) St Clears.
