Despite being unofficially named since 1848, the name was only officially conferred on the services in September 1927. Running between London Euston and Holyhead, the train operated travelling post offices with mailbag pick-up and drop-off apparatus. The train continued to run throughout the war although the official title was withdrawn. The title was formally re-introduced by British Railways in May 1948.

 

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.
