New sign for Eltham station

New signs near Eltham station look set to be painted  under a railway bridge.

Similar signs have appeared at various stations after commission from Network Rail.

A similar sign by artist Lionel Stanhope appeared in Plumstead last year.

Many others have appeared across the country and have done a great job of brightening up forgotten corners.


  1. I didn’t realise they were commissioned by Network Rail. I was told the Brockley one was commissioned by locals. Obviously got that wrong!

    Like you, I really rate them. The more the merrier.

    Yeah they look smart, not too overbearing either.

  3. Gordon of Grenwich

    I would love to see something similar on the Woolwich Road flyover.

  4. CDT

    The certainly do brighten up the area and dull walls. I like them

  5. Agree the Plumstead one looks great
