GWR Brass Cashbag Plate PRESTON HALT TO PAIGNTON. It is doubtful whether a rarer plate will ever come onto the market because the Great Western Railway opened a platform to serve the popular Preston Sands beach in Paignton on 24 July 1911. It was mainly served by the steam rail motors that had been introduced earlier that year to compete with the trams then running between Paignton and Torquay. It only lasted a few years, being closed on 21 September 1914. A truly unbelievable survivor.
