The Comet was introduced as a titled train by the London Midland and Scottish Railway in September 1932. Running between London Euston and Manchester London Road, the name was derived from the contraction of 'Cottonopolis' and 'Metropolis' and not the shooting star. It was one of the fastest trains on the LMS and was so popular that a relief train was often run on Friday evenings. The title was withdrawn on 9 September 1939 for the duration of the Second World War only to be re-introduced in September 1949.

 

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.
