Someone I know (is on this forum), peeled off the sticky tape to reveal the FGE logo at his Local station, and within 24 Hours, someone had been back and totally removed the logo from the sign.

Funny how Anglia logos still appear though...they're not scared of them

There are still a few old Regional Railways clocks at Bradford Forster Square. However, there are some very odd signs at Gilberdyke station on the Hull-Selby line.

The station signs are all in the SYPTE style, with the yellow band and their logo, but Gilberdyke is in East Yorkshire, as are the next two stations, Saltmarshe and Goole, and both of them have the standard regional railways style signs. Any reason why Gilberdyke is out of place? :?

Telford Central still has Regional Railways branding on the info signs. The vast majority of station name signs round here are either in Regional Railways style complete with blue band with the 3 white tips, or even further back in 1970s style BR white signs with black writing.

I don't think that Chiltern have gotten around to branding any of their stations. All NSE!
Have you ever been on Chiltern before? Nearly all of their stations have Chiltern branding!

South Ruislip still has NSE Branding, the two Sudbury stations might have as well as these only have a limited service.

The 315s/321s on the GEML still have Great Eastern branding, but I've not need any with the First Logo on for a while, also some of the 360s still have FGE routemaps with the First logo covered up, although some now have the One version.

One station never likely to get rid of the NSE Logo is Emerson Park, where the logo is embedded in the brick work on the platform surface!

Bring back the Essex Electrics Logo, which can still be partly seen (the Essex Swords) on the Chelmsford Ticket Office windows with the Great Eastern Railway Branding under it.

I've done all of Chiltern's routes except the Stratford service, and I can assure you that the vast majority of their stations now have Chiltern branding.
