It's August 1985 and the blue enamel platform number signs at Gourock are already an anachronism compared with with the 'Strathclyde Red' (orange to you and me) of 303038. That notice about loading also belonged to a vanished era when the loading of goods at a passenger station was likely. To be pedantic (oh, let's) the order doesn't preclude loading or unloading without passing the notice, though the porters would have to be unusually strong and have a good aim.
