DescriptionNothing is more evocative of the golden age of travel than the railway poster. Speed to the West shows some of the best railway posters used to promote the romance of holiday travel to the West Country, a region formed by Dorset, Somerset, Devon and Cornwall. There are stunning and iconic landscapes, immediately recognisable, painted in wonderful colours that bring together the excitement, spectacle and nostalgia of the golden age of train travel. The general history of holiday express train development is covered including a detailed history of the Atlantic Coast Express and Cornish Riviera Express together with other named trains that served the West Country. The result is a visually stunning collection of posters. It is a journey of nostalgia, displaying the best of British railway advertising of the past and present.

Living close to the railway lines in the historic and industrial part of East Shropshire, he grew up to the sights, smells and sounds of the steam locomotives. Richard has been writing books on railway-related subjects for many years. He is the author of the successful and critically-acclaimed Poster to Poster series. Co-authored by railway expert and BBC Antiques Roadshow presenter Paul Atterbury.
