Train Station, England, ca. 1930s
A few of my favourite steam-age railway posters.
Really nice impression
I love the old ads. Because of my this weeks train focus one with a train..

That is a contrast to the well known steam trains. But in the 1930s streamlining was a issue.
Another giant steam locomotive from Germany. It is a Borsig express train from the 03 series. This one built in 1933 with 1980 horsepower, nearly 24 meter length and a top speed of 130 km/h.
