BR Paper Models • c1950

Here is the cover of a folder with four sheets of paper model trains within.

Actually, it’s one loco and tender, an SR streamlined Merchant Navy or Battle of Britain class by Bullied, with a passenger carriage and a number of goods wagons, and a station.

A whole model railway in fact.

I love paper-models in their sheet form.

French Railway Poster • 1967

This is a poster for the French Government Railway bond sale from 1967.

I’ve posted a few of these images on this blog. When you look at them togetehr they are quite interesting.

Typically, the posters are designed by French poster artists in a style that combines modernist geometry with painterly effects.

I would say that these posters provide an inexpensive and interesting field for collectors…
