    While I was traversing the section of the GJR between Warrington BQ and Newton Junction/Earlestown, I spotted a sign what appears to be in a similar style to the traditional mileposts that are found lineside.

    Between where the traditional GJR route diverges from the later London & NWR Golborne cut off and Earlestown, the sign had ACE on both sides of the post, with a letter P on one side and the letter L on the other (apologies if I'm not quite clear - unfortunately I did not have a device to take a photo of it).

    What I am interested in is what this sign actually relates to, and wonder if the "P" and "L" refer to Preston or Parkside, and London respectively?

    In peace
