LMS Route: Stratford Midland Junction - The Shakespeare Route

Bidford on Avon: smjboa1a

Close up   showing the innovative booking office in LMS days

Close up of image 'smjboa' showing the entrance to Bidford on Avon's innovative booking office which was formed inside the second arch of the bridge. The full size photo has two items which puzzle the author, the first being the noticeboard on the right which has the lettering L & N W R at the top. Whilst it wasn't unusual for a 'foreign' railway to have its notice or poster board on another railway property, particularly if 'running rights' or connecting services were being offered such as to holiday destinations, its difficult to understand why a L&NWR board was on display at a very rural and lightly used station.
