Introduced in 1938 these LMS standard ‘Hawkseye’ signs were provided at stations that were being renovated or modernised. Manufactured by Hawkes of Birmingham, the name panels were introduced following extensive research by the LMS into the visibility of signs at a distance. These yellow name panel with black lettering carried almost a million minute glass beads. The Hawkseye was mounted on a light grey panel and this was set into a sturdy wooden frame that was creosoted. These signs were placed approximately 15-20 yards from the platform ramps (depending on station size). These cast alloy boards were also used without the frame when applied to walls elsewhere within a station. In the BR period after nationalisation most of these signs were painted in LMR maroon and white with many surviving until the late 1950s/early 1960s
