It has come as no surprise that in recent years the humble 'totem' station sign has become so collectible for people from all walks of life. Designed by BR in 1948, they carried the six regional colours for a few decades. They may have disappeared from our stations but not from our memories. This lavishly illustrated book contains over 1,380 images of totems, stations and related railwayana from all over Great Britain. Its aim is to enlighten both the serious collector and casual observer alike. Comprehensive tables show which stations were fitted with totems and their survival where known. The early history of collecting is documented for the first time and the authors also look at the collecting scene today. It is hoped that this new work will rekindle memories to transport the reader back to places of a misspent youth. This is the only book to chart the history of British Railways station signs. Three years' research has allowed the authors to fill a space in the enthusiasts' library, with a lavishly illustrated and comprehensive guide to the subject.
