The Flying Scotsman

TT2-FSCOT

Perhaps the most well known express passenger train. The service began with the London North Eastern Railway in 1927 and ran from Kings Cross to Edinburgh Waverley. This set comprises of two sizes of carriage boards. The shorter ones were used with LNER Gresley designed stock and the later eleven feet ones are for use with British Railway’s Mark 1 coaching stock. A wide variety of headboards are represented including the Deltic type headboards / thistle.

The Mayflower

TT2-MAY

Introduced by British Railways in 1957, and operating between Paddington and Plymouth, the title originally ran with a plain black headboard. Later in the year it was replaced with the decorative one with a painting of the Pilgrim Fathers’ ship - The Mayflower. It is believed that this was not used after 1963. The title was withdrawn two years later in 1965. Two sets of carriage boards are provided, Western Region started to use the traditional Great Western colour scheme on its stock in the latter years of the 1950s.

The Irish Mail

TT2-IMAIL

The title for this train had unofficially existed since the 1840s and connected with sailings from Holyhead. The train only ever had one type of headboard in red (although with have produced one in black - should you wish to use it). The title was officially dropped in the spring of 1985.

The Golden Arrow

TT2-GOLD

Probably the most iconic of all titled trains, The Golden Arrow was re-introduced by British Railways after the war in April 1946.  In 1951 a new set of Pullmans was built for the train, as part of British Railways' celebration of the Festival of Britain. In 1961, with the Kent Coast electrification scheme, the train became electric-hauled. The last ‘Golden Arrow’ run in September 1972. The set includes all headboard types and Pullman side name boards.

Heart of Midlothian

TT2-MIDLOTH

Titled for the Festival of Britain in 1951, the service operated between London Kings Cross and Edinburgh Waverley. For one year only in 1957, the service was extended to Perth (the pack does not cover this period). The white headboard was introduced in 1962 and was designed to be carried by diesel traction. The title ceased running in 1968.

The Lakes Express

TT2-LAKES

Originally introduced by the London Midland and Scottish Railway in 1927, the service was re-introduced after the War in 1950. The express left London Euston and the Windermere portion was detached at Oxenholme. The rest of the train went on to Penrith and then continued along the Cockermouth, Keswick and Penrith line before terminating at Workington. The train only had one headboard that was introduced in 1951 and although it was rarely used, we have included two for the modeller to choose. The service which ran for the summer timetable only was dropped in 1964.

The Master Cutler

The service began in October 1947 and ran between London Marylebone and Sheffield. This set comprises of two sizes of carriage boards. The shorter ones were used with LNER Gresley designed stock and the later eleven feet ones are for use with British Railway’s Mark 1 coaching stock. The service ceased to run in September 1958 when it was replaced by The Master Cutler Pullman.

TT2-MC

TT2-MERSEY

Originally introduced by the London Midland and Scottish Railway in 1928, the service was re-introduced after the War in 1949. The service was dropped from the timetable in 1966. The train had two sets of carriage boards, the grey set featured Liverpool’s famous Liver Birds. The Maroon set was more regularly used.

The Merseyside Express

The Mid-Day Scot

TT2-MDS

Like the Royal Scot, this express running between London and Glasgow was introduced by the London Midland and Scottish Railway in 1927. Similarly it also ceased running for the duration of the Second World War only to be re-introduction in 1949. The headboards with red or light blue backgrounds were introduced in 1951.The express as a titled train last ran in June 1965.

TT2-MIDLAND

Introduced by British Railways in September 1950, The Midlander ran between London Euston and Wolverhampton High Level via the Northampton loop. Although in reality the train only ever had a red headboard, we have included a black one should the modeller wish to use it. Originally the train carried the maroon coach boards, however, as a result of British Railways giving greater autonomy to its regions, new blue coach boards were introduced (with the coat of arms of Birmingham) in June 1956. The service last ran as a titled train in September 1959.

The Midlander

The Northumbrian

TT2-NORTHUM

Introduced by British Railways in 1949, the service ran between Kings Cross and Newcastle until 1964. The shorter carriage boards were used with LNER Gresley designed stock and the later eleven feet ones are for use with British Railway’s Mark 1 coaching stock.

TT2-NFERRY

The Night Ferry is perhaps the most unusual of all titled trains that ran in Britain for it hauled Continental coaches in its rake. The Wagon-Lits coaches were reduced in height to meet the British loading gauge. The service was originally introduced in the autumn of 1936 on the completion of the train terry terminals at Dover and Dunkirk. The Wagon-Lits cars were shipped across the channel allowing their first class passengers to remain in their sleeping berths. This pack contains appropriate headboards together with details for coaching stock. The service finally came to an end in 1980.
