These trains became popular with business men in the north-west during the early twentieth century. They were trains that had reversed special saloons or coaches for the exclusive use of business men who wanted to be together during their journeys. For this arrangement a special supplement was paid. The two that are represented in this pack are perhaps the most well known: The Llandudno and Blackpool Club trains. The artwork for the boards in this pack have been worked from photographs of the period and the wording is therefore prototypical.

Yorkshire Pullman

The title came into being in September 1935 as a result of a Hull portion being added to what was the West Riding Pullman making a title change necessary. Normally the train was loaded with eight Pullman Cars: Four from Harrogate (via York), two from Hull and two from Halifax. However as the train later grew to up to twelve cars it would require Pacific locomotive haulage. Withdrawn in early September 1939, the train was reinstated in November 1946.

The Night Scot

The Night Scot run by the LMSR was essentially an express with sleeping car accommodation. The train left London Euston at approximately quarter to midnight arriving in Glasgow in good time for the next working day. The up train left Glasgow at 10.45 p.m. and arrived at Euston at 7.15 a.m. During the Second World War the train continued but lost its title. It was a particularly heavy train with accommodation reserved for troops. Strangely, British Railways never re-introduced the title after the War.
