Richmond Station - Old railway posters 

The stairs of Richmond station became something of a time machine in  December 2011. When the current day advertising boards were removed they revealed a set of posters that had not seen the light of day since the mid 1980's. 

To order a hi-resolution copy of any of these photos click here (image reference LDN-RICHPOST-1-5) and state image description.

British Rail Poster - Open and shut on the southern

A poster explaining how to operate the door buttons on the new trains back in 1986. It was beginning of the end of slam door trains on London's commuter routes. Whilst its all very well to explain the changes to passengers anyone who couldn't read the buttons on the trains themselves was very unlikely to read a more detailed poster on the steps of the station either!
