Introduced by the Great Western Railway in  July 1923 this train quickly acquired a reputation for speed and by July 1929 had became the fastest regular railway run in the world, earning it the nickname ‘The Cheltenham Flyer’. Being keen to publicise this the GWR had a special headboard made that the train carried from 1931. The title was withdrawn in September 1939, only to be re-introduced by British Railways as the Cheltenham Spa Express in June 1956.

 

Quick and easy to use, this pack allows you to recreate your chosen titled train with the appropriate choice of coachboards, corridor tail boards and locomotive headboards (when appropriate). Printed to a high resolution on quality photographic card, the pack comes with full instructions.
