An original and uncommon wartime propaganda poster published by the Railway Executive Committee in about 1942. The design, by poster artist Leslie Carr, depicts a passenger train halted at a signal to allow a goods train carrying artillery to pass. In the centre are two permanent way workers who, together with the passengers and driver of the stopped train, wave the goods train on its way. Restored and laid onto Japan paper. Outstanding colour.
