    Thrapston had two stations, Midland Road and Bridge Street. The only picture I can find of Bridge Street sign shows it as a double liner so I assume this is from Midland Road. However, the only picture I can find of the Midland Road running in board shows it as a double sign. The upper portion saying "Thrapston" and the lower, smaller portion saying "Midland Road". Seems the seller wants £500 for a damaged section of an incomplete set.

    Edit. Midland Road also had this type of sign so maybe it's a bit of one of these.

    Seems somewhat optimistic. Probably best to bundle this with something else as very difficult to sell on its own.

    This is the last service train to call at Thrapston Midland ,8.10PM (SO) Kettering to Cambridge on 13/06/1959.Cambridge usually sent a J15 for this turn. I left the train here to go over to Wellingboro to do the Higham branch that was also closing that evening. Picture attached.
