For those of us who grew up in the 80’s and 90’s doing a bit of trainspotting or simply enjoying the railways at that time will remember the depot plaques that were assigned to depots across the country during the sectoristation period.
We had Railfreight Petroleum, Railfreight Distribution, Railfreight Coal, Railfreight Construction, Railfreight Metals and Railfreight General, albeit the latter didn’t remain for too long.
With the different sectors, depots had their own unique depot plaque, most were created and designed by The Roundel Group and based them on local industry. A number of other plaques surfaced which were designed by the local depot staff. The depot plaques adorned many classes of locomotives for a number of years and as a railway enthusiast in that period of time, it created a lot of interest.
For a limited period, we are offering some polished-edged acrylic depot plaque key rings based on the most popular depots across the country. These are made from 6mm clear acrylic and if you shine an LED light from underneath, it will make the outer egde and emblem kind of light up!
A great little gift as a reminder of the period of sectorisation on the railways.
