A truly outstanding 1930s British railway poster, promoting the ‘West Riding Limited’ train service from London to Leeds/Bradford and featuring one of the newly introduced A4 Pacific streamlined locomotives – the fastest steam locomotives in the world. The stylish, Art-Deco inspired, design was commissioned from Charles (‘Shep’) Shepherd, head of the progressive Baynard Press studio. Much reproduced in books on the subject, original copies of this poster very rarely come for sale.
