The first run of this titled sleeping car service took place on July 11 1927. It was formed with dining car facilities and through portions to Aberdeen, Inverness and Fort William. The train became very popular and a relief service titled the Highlandman was introduced during the summers to run in conjunction with the Aberdonian. The service departing from King’s Cross continued throughout the war although it did not display its headboard or coachboards.

The Bristolian

The Bristolian was introduced by the Great Western Railway in their centenary year 1935. It was a non-stop express on the London - Bristol main line with seven purpose built coaches that allowed it to achieve an average speed of 70 mph between Paddington and Bristol Temple Meads. The title was suspended for the duration of the Second World War and was only reinstated as a titled train in 1951.

The Comet

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 The title was withdrawn on 9 September 1939 for the duration of the Second World War only to be re-introduced in September 1949.

Flying Scotsman

Perhaps the most well known express passenger train dates back to 1862 when it was known as the ‘Special Scotch Express’. The title was introduced by the London North Eastern Railway in 1927 and ran from Kings Cross to Edinburgh Waverley. Running non-stop it initially took eight and half hours to cover the 393 miles although the time was accelerated from 1932. The service was hauled by A1 and A3 Pacifics and by A4 Pacifics from 1937. The title continued to be used in the timetable for the duration of the Second World War although records demonstrate that it was not formally identified.

Cornish Riviera Limited

The history of this train can be traced back to the early part of twentieth century when the Great Western Railway the time to be run between London Paddington and Penzance. It was perhaps one of the most iconic titled trains being used by thousands of holidaymakers during the 1930s and after the war when the title was resumed. By the 1930s, on some runs there were as many as nine different portions reaching many different destinations in the south-west. The title was suspended for the duration of the Second World War but was quickly re-introduced in May 1946 as the Cornish Riviera Express.

Cheltenham Spa Express

Introduced by the Great Western Railway in  July 1923 this train quickly acquired a reputation for speed and by July 1929 had became the fastest regular railway run in the world, earning it the nickname ‘The Cheltenham Flyer’. Being keen to publicise this the GWR had a special headboard made that the train carried from 1931. The title was withdrawn in September 1939, only to be re-introduced by British Railways as the Cheltenham Spa Express in June 1956.
