LMS Route: Stratford Midland Junction - The Shakespeare
Bidford on Avon: smjboa1a
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.
