Another St Agnes item returns home

In early July we were told that some interesting items from the old St Agnes Station were coming up for auction at Great Central Auctions in Warwickshire. They included a train staff similar to the one we bought for the Museum in 2009, but for the other half of the line, St Agnes to Perranporth, together with an enormous cast-iron sign, 72″ long, from the old signalbox, and pictured here, courtesy of Great Central Auctions.

Sadly we failed to purchase the train staff but were delighted that we managed to buy the sign after some frantic bidding. We are now arranging to bring it home to St Agnes and hope to have it on display soon.
