LMS Route: Evesham to Birmingham
Broom Junction Station: mrbj537a
Close up of image 'mrbj537' showing the rear of the standard MR
angled two-faced station name board and its central ornate supporting bracket.
The two faces were set at an oblique angle to each other thereby allowing
passengers to view the name board a little earlier and clearer than would be
the case if they were parallel with the track as was the case with most other
railway companies' station name boards. See image 'mrbj156a' for a view of the front of the name board.
The equipment seen between the two sets of tracks are two ground (disc) signals
which would repeat the relative semaphore signal which in this instance was
located to the left of the photographer (see the bracket signals on the right
of image 'mrbj156a'). Clearly there must have been
instances of damage to them as, unusually, they are protected by a steel bar
running over the top.
