Great Northern Railway 8 inch dial Mahogany cased fusee clock Ex Finsbury Park.

8 inch mahogany cased iron dial fusee railway clock with a cast brass bezel supplied to the GNR in the late 19th century by John Walker of London. The quality English fusee movement in fully overhauled condition has rectangular plates, which are held together by turned cylindrical pillars. A Mahogany case with a one piece turned surround held onto the back box by two tapered pegs, the back box is of typical late 19th century design with one side door and a bottom door secured by a brass lock and has the usual Walker cock beading to the bottom door. An enamel painted iron dial with Arabic bearing the legend, B.R. 9648, this would have been applied in the late 1960’s or even the early 1970’s by Doncaster clock workshops. The London and North Eastern Railway clock records show that this clock was located at, Finsbury Park, Booking Office and would have certainly been in use when the Deltics were shedded and serviced there. Finsbury Park was a former Great Northern Railway Station in Middlesex on the line between King’s Cross and Barnet.
