The power and beauty of steam is shown with this original vintage poster by Charles Mayo on a commission by GWR, aka “God’s Wonderful Railway” was to get you to visit Cornwall on their express train.

 

In fact the Cornish Riviera Express was introduced in 1904 by GWR and runs from Paddington, London to Penzance. Diesel-Electric is used today but the nostalgia is steam as this vintage poster depicts. It should also be noted that there is very little difference in performance between today and the 1930s.
