• One of the first undertakings in Britain to introduce the DoE recommended standard bus stop sign is Teesside Municipal Transport. A total of 1500 signs are required inside the county borough and already 250 have been manufactured by a Vacuum Applicator sign-making machine installed last September.
The signs are faced with Scotchcal film from 3M (Scotchcal is a 3M trade mark) which is bonded to 11-gauge aluminium backing plates in the applicator. Some 1000 Scotchcal silk-screen printed bus stop sign faces—two for each sign—have been supplied by the company's factory at Tredegar. South Wales.
Measuring Ift x Ift 6in., the bus stop signs are white in colour with a torquoise band (the undertaking's livery) and show the black .outline of a bus. The lin. black numerals are supplied by William Smith and Co Ltd. Barnard Castle, Co. Durham.
