We’ve always loved the classic railway company posters that hark back to simpler times, and we really love the modern spin that the National Railway Museum has put on them with their new collection.
Originally intended to promote holiday destinations served by railway companies, historic railway posters were often created by well-known artists of the day to entice passengers to holiday destinations. The new set of posters – now available to purchase through the Railway Museum’s website – reflect the unique lockdown period that we’re living through.
While we can only dream of hopping on the train to enjoy a day out or holiday at the moment, we can hang these cleverly reimagined posters on our walls and look forward to a time when we’re free to travel again. You can download the images for free, or buy poster quality prints from the NRM shop. Destinations include London, Cornwall, Scotland and – most importantly – the Yorkshire Coast and North East Coast (Whitby)! If the posters don’t have you planning your next daytrip or staycation, we don’t know what will. What we do know is that it will be worth the wait.
