John Austin - The Night Mail - Duchess (W)
Railway Train Steam Locomotive Christmas Birthday Card featuring LMS / BR 46238 City of Carlisle from a painting by John Austin GRA
Christmas sees a huge rise in the amount of post sent and in the 1950s and 1960s this meant extra work for the mail services of British Railways. Here we see a West Coast Mail express picking up water with Coronation Pacific 46238 City of Carlisle at its head. In the carriages, Royal Mail workers sort and prepare mail for the various destinations.
John Austin's Railway Art Card would be an ideal Christmas or Birthday Card for any Railway Enthusiast and especially those with a love of the LMS and BR Midland Region
PLEASE NOTE: While advertised as a Christmas Card, the card is BLANK so is appropriate for any occasion.
