London Transport
Bus Stop Flags sold on ebay

Last updated

 

I have been tracking the sale of London Transport bus stop flags on ebay since mid-2006. I have (loosely) grouped them into four categories:

Pre-War
Flat signs with a bronze frame.
Bus Compulsory Bus Request
LPTB (London Passenger Transport Board)
The traditional “boat” sign. Compulsory stops have a black bar on the bulls-eye. Request stops have black text on earlier examples, and coloured text on later ones.
Bus Compulsory Bus Request
LTE (London Transport Executive)
Boat-shaped signs with a solid-colour roundel and no text on the bar.
Bus Compulsory Bus Request
TfL (TransportforLondon)
The current style with the stop type listed on a red band.
Bus Compulsory Bus Request
Dolly
Portable dolly stops and temporary overlay stickers.

Of course, price is always dependent upon condition, demand and rarity.

It is believed that a B(R)C(C) (Bus Request Coach Compulsory) sign would command a price in excess of £350, as there were only a handful known to have been erected.

I have also created a page of miniature souvenir stop signs, as sold in the London’s Transport Museum gift shop.
