The listed 1970s blind has a consistent font but this one has differing heights and widths of letters and many of the destinations look quite different from each other. It is white on a black background printed on a thick acetate plastic material, by Kelbus.
It is probably from the '60s or early '70s and it has almost exactly the same destinations as the 1970s version, except that Doncaster in missing and they are in a different order - grouped in a way which is helpful for the services worked such as Sudbury, Marks Tey and Colchester are all together, Norwich, Sheringham and Cromer together etc. Points of note are the fact that Norwich is included twice and there is punctuation in the form of a full stop in Bury St. Edmunds and an apostrophe in King's Lynn but not in Bishops Stortford, Kings Cross or Marks Tey. Also Bishops Stortford is all on one line as opposed to two lines of smaller letters as more commonly seen.
This blind came out of Class 100 DMBS no. 51125 as seen from the vehicle number written on one of the hems, presumably when the vehicle was withdrawn from Norwich depot.
