Pointless signs - Smethwick Rolfe Street

This from D0260...

How's this for a cracker, seen last week at Smethwick Rolfe Street station between Wolverhampton and Birmingham on the WCML.

It has two completely useless signs as well as a garden on the platform.

The sign nearest is so rusty , that nothing at all can be read on it, I haven't a clue what it used to say.

The second sign in six foot tall overgrowth says "Passengers must not alight here".

Really!!! Prizes surely for ideas how that would be possible anyway.

The final shot shows the vertical garden wall of greenery taken from where I was standing, looking in the opposite direction

There were enough poppy seed heads visible to be of interest to Afghan producers.
