Concrete Lampposts  

Concrete Lamposts

Concrete Lampposts on the up platform at West Wickham in June 1973. 

West Wickham is an intermediate station on the Elmer's End to Hayes branch. As well as lighting the platforms these lampposts could support information for the staff. In this example it marks the drivers stop position at the platform for 6 & 8 car electric units. 

This photo also shows where the platform was extended under the Southern Region 10-car scheme. An excellent article on this scheme can be found in the January 1994 issue of British Railways Illustrated.
