Survivor of the era prior to Grouping

I PASS this sign every day, just opposite Hampstead Heath station, and wonder if it is a unique survivor?

Advertising the LNER route to Scotland, and as Nationalisation was 1948 it must be 70 years old, at least.

Are there many other such survivors of the ‘Big Four’?
