That’s what we used to call them when I was a boy growing up in Scotland. I wonder if that’s what they were called in Wales? Anyway the WordPress Weekly Challenge this week is Signs and I thought this one of the railway station at Llangollen would fit the bill. But the sign on it’s own didn’t really make an impact so I’ve included one I managed to catch with a train in the foreground.
The train adds emphasis that we are looking at a railway station sign. But what about the train? From research I know that 80072 was a rusting hulk lying in Woodham’s Scrap Yard, Barry. Now it’s one of the steam engines on the Llangollen Railway and a great sight to photograph.
