London and South Western Railway 8 inch dial mahogany cased fusee clock supplied to the LSWR in 1898 by Thomas of Southampton at a cost of 1-16-0. The rectangular plated wire driven fusee movement has turned screwed pillars. The mahogany case has a one piece turned surround, dovetailed back box with one side door and a bottom door with cock beading secured by a brass lock no key present, it has also lost some veneer at the bottom. The original dial is lettered L.S.W.R 86 although the L and W have been rubbed out in Southern Railway days but are clearly visible. The Southern Railway clock records show this clock as last being in use at Redbridge Permanent Way Engineers. In working condition complete with pendulum and key. A rare clock that has retained its pre grouping dial writing albeit with the L and W visible as ghosted writing. In working condition complete with pendulum, key and a copy of the clock record, but not tested for timekeeping.
