Hand operated railway station clock

This is an original clock that stood on the main platform at Crewe Railway Station.

The clock is in quite superb condition and has a number of indicator arms that would be changed by the operator, (perhaps by a young lad) to give out train information times to various other main railway stations.  The wooden clock hands are moved around by hand - intentionally it never had a clock mechanism. 

The detachable arms indicate stations to: Liverpool. Castleton, Manchester. Bolton, Wigan, Oldham, Bury, Southport.

The clock is painted in the original colours of the Great Western Railway company, and  was constructed about the year 1870.   Apparently there are old Victorian images of Crewe Station actually showing this clock in use.

A truly wonderful collectors item for the railway enthusiast.

W 990mm x D 1300mm x H 3355mm
