This receipt, dating from 1948, is an example of what was required to be able to store a bicycle at the station.
    Potato traffic wagon label
Potato traffic formed a large part of the M&GN's goods consignment and this label is an example of one attached to a wagon carried from Wryde Station to King's Cross.
    M&GN Winter Timetable, 1937-1938
Although by this time the M&GN was actually controlled by the LNER it retained its own identity. This timetable was owned by Billy Durrant, one of the signalmen at Potter Heigham station who doubtless referred to it in his work.
