These were introduced throughout the LMS in the 1930's in the form of an Aluminium Target shaped sign on a backing board. These were used instead of running in boards and as such were relatively large.

They were originally painted yellow with black letters & had fragments of glass embedded in the face to help the signs stand out at night.

Hawkseyes are not as sought after as the Southern Railway Targets as they are rather difficult to display and are aluminium rather than enamel. They also do not turn up so often for sale and so are one of the more difficult collecting fields.

However if you have the space and are an enthusiast of the LMS then this might be an area to collect as prices are quite reasonable with the most expensive sold in auction being CLYDACH HALT which we sold for 1650 in our February internet auction.
