Ryde South - Brading large staff, 'B' configuration.

 During the summer period the staff section was shortened to Smallbrook -Brading  Junction, the brass location caps were replaced accordingly.


In 1957 the large staffs were replaced with Key Token, again 'B' configuration.

The summer practice of shortening the token section continued.


Sandown - Shanklin, key tokens 'C' configuation, both alloy and steel examples.

Note that the steel example has a round hole in the handle instead of triangular, no doubt as a result of the Southern's practice of re-using equipment wherever possible.

In 1957 the Large Staffs were replaced by key token, 'A' configuration.
