HC Deb 18 January 1940 vol 356 c270W
Captain Plugge

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will see that employés of the main and suburban line railways in charge of stations are instructed to call out the name of each station during black-out hours at which a train may stop, since it is impossible to read any names at night; and that the London Passenger Transport Board's omnibus and underground railway employés, where necessary, follow the same practice?

Captain Wallace

Employés of the main line railway companies and of the London Passenger Transport Board have already received instructions to call out the names of railway stations and the stopping places of buses. Steps are also being taken to improve the illumination of station name plates.
