Heritage Railway magazine – December 2016

Posted by: Andy Smith – Date: Friday, December 16, 2016

Lovely article by Geoff Courtney in December’s issue of Heritage Railway magazine. Railway enthusiast and BBC Antiques Roadshow expert Paul Atterbury has written the foreword for volume eight, in which he describes the series as “one of the most ambitious and spectacular set of books in recent publishing history. No one can ever even dream of producing a better, more colourful or more comprehensive history of the railway poster.” GC 034 News_223

Hello Poster to Poster collectors,


I’m delighted to announce that Volume 8: Worldwide Destinations and Volume 2: Yorkshire & the North East of the definitive Poster to Poster series are now available to purchase. These volumes of British railway posters showcase some of the greatest collections of railway posters to be found anywhere in the world .

Volume 8 uses our National Collection of posters to take a journey around some wonderful continental destinations such as France, Germany and Italy, as well as Ireland and North America, which both the British and foreign railway companies advertised, before examining general British poster policy and the services our railways offered, covering hotels, ferry, air and freight services and holiday guides.

Volume 2 uses our National Collection of posters to take a journey around Northumberland, Durham and Yorkshire using many images unique to this series. The result is a stunning artistic guide to both the ‘birthplace of railways’ and its railway poster heritage.  With a foreword by the BBC’s Paul Atterbury, it is a wonderful nostalgic journey.

To guarantee yourself a copy of these stunning books you can purchase Volume 2 for £35 (plus £5.90 postage) and Volume 8 for £35 (plus £5.90 postage) (£81.80 in total) using PayPal via the website at:

There is a limited print run of both so make sure you reserve your copies now. note that other volumes in the series are also available.

Watch this space!
