Description

Flying Scotsman  at Kings Cross Railway Poster  Metal Wall Art (4 Sizes)

The Flying Scotsman at Kings Cross Railway Poster, from the Mid 20th Century. First built in Doncaster in 1923 and numbered 4472, The Flying Scotsman has had quite a journey in its lifetime. Travelling the globe on special visits, it was once the staple of the London to Edinburgh route on the LNER line. The Scotsman even, for example, pulled the famous Orient Express Pullman. Starting life painted BR green, the engine then became black during world war two. The engine even became blue! Currently it’s been restored back to its classic apple green colour. The number 60103 was adopted when British Rail took over the lines in 1948.

Often regarded as the golden age of Train travel, these travel posters are familiar to generations of train travellers across the UK. In addition to this, most of these artworks encouraged families to explore the United Kingdom via train. Specially commissioned artists, such as Ronald Lampitt, Norman Wilkinson and Frank Henry Mason, produced beautiful British Rail Travel Posters. These displayed all the major towns and cities across the UK. This one, for example, is for The Flying Scotsman stationed at Kings Cross ready for its next journey non stop to Edinburgh. Perfect gift for a railway enthusiast or, likewise, collectors of vintage advertising signs.
