York – National Railway Museum (Shrub Hill Road Level Crossing)

And another from the stores of the National Railway Museum.

This handy and overly complex sign was once at Shrub Hill Road level crossing, which I think was in Worcester. I can’t see where this would have been located, as the crossings at this railway station now go under the tracks. They also went under the tracks though in the 1880s, although this sign could have been earlier, but the NRM don’t know the date of it. But in any event, it does require some reading to understand when it would have been safe to cross.
