The British Railway Clock Specialist
12 inch Oak cased iron dial fusee railway clock with a spun brass bezel supplied to the Barry Railway by Barry Á Sons of Cardiff circa 1860. The quality English chain driven fusee movement in fully overhauled condition has large A shaped plates with a rectangular cut out to the bottom these are held together by turned cylindrical collared pillars. A Fine oak case with a 8 piece segmented convex and concave surround held onto the back box by four tapered pegs with a GWR numberplate 2236 fixed onto the left hand side, the back box is of typical mid 19th century design with two side doors and a bottom door with the lock removed and secured by a ball bearing catch, this would have been fitted by the GWR clock workshops at Reading and is a common feature on GWR clocks. An enamel painted iron dial with Roman numerals and bearing the GWR roundel logo and also visible is the original Ghosted dial writing BARRY RAILWAY Coy BARRY & Sons CARDIFF. On the rear of the case is a GWR label which reads GREAT WESTERN RAILWAY Return to Cadoxton Yard Inspectors Office Dock Managers Dept. Barry Docks, rare to have this information with a GWR clock as most of the records were lost in 1984. This is the best example I have seen of these very desirable clocks.
