An interesting example of self publicity from the nationalised British Railways, 1958. The image is intended to convey scale and progress, with Paddington station at the top and a new, modernist inspired, commuter station in the middle. Similarly, a modern diesel train is shown alongside a steam hauled Passenger Express. This original poster was recently rediscovered in a loft in west London, together with a collection of posters, ephemera, and drawings from the former British Railways (Western Region) Publicity Office at Paddington.
