At interchange stations where the entrance serves more than one transport network, an interchange totem sign should be adopted. The purpose of the totem is to clearly and consistently identify the modes available around a particular site. At station entrances only the core network identities are to be displayed, e.g. the National Rail symbol may be used but Train Operating Company logos are not permitted. For further details on the use of combined network signs at interchange stations, refer to the TfL ‘Multi-Modal Interchange Signs Standards’. There are two principal versions of the interchange totem, a base-mounted version which can accommodate all network symbols required, and a wall-mounted version which may be used for two network symbols. Where the only place to identify the modes of transport available is on the side of the station, then a flat wall mounted totem may be used.
Both share a curved profile in white aluminium, with inset curved illuminated acrylic symbols. Totems should be positioned in particular locations to ensure that from all approaches to the site, the modes of transport available at or around the site, are easily recognisable from a distance. All transport services will be identified on a totem, so long as they meet the criteria deemed necessary for inclusion as an interchange.
On Overground totems the Overground roundel must always be accompanied by the National Rail logo beneath it. These two logos are always to be displayed first. Where an Overground station interchanges with the rest of the National Rail network and that property is owned by National Rail, it is the National Rail logo that is displayed before the Overground roundel.
If the totem is on DLR property then the DLR roundel is displayed first. All other logos should follow in order of customer usage.
