Thrumster Railway Station Gets Its Sign Restored
11th September 2014
Yarrows Heritage Trust located near Thrumster has a number of projects and one of them for the last few years has been the restoration of the Thrumster Railway Station that was once part of the Wick Lybster railway.
Recently the Trust managed to locate and recover the original station platform sign. Following restoration and repainting in the original colours the sign has now been erected on new posts of same design as original.
The sign comprises solid metal lettering on a timber board and according to a group member, weighs a 'ton' - certainly made to last.
