A typical S.C.T. stop sign, this would have sat on top of a red metal pole. This design was in use in the 1950s and 1960s.

Last Week ticket   Last Crossing ticket
Normally free to pedestrians, passengers could buy this souvenir ticket for 10p.   My ticket for the last crossing which was accompanied by a jazz band and fireworks.
Overtime Slip   Standby Slip
Just about the only time you wanted to see an inspector was when he brought you one of these. This one gave me four and a quarter hours at time and a half. It would have followed an early turn and still gave me most of the evening off.   Some duties included time on standby, available to cover journeys at short notice. The driver or conductor would be given a slip with details of the work to be covered. This might be because someone was late or sick, or they might be given a break before starting overtime.
