Two rather splendid British Railways posters from the 'good old days' publicising the powerhouse that was the North East of England.
At the top a painting of what was once the colossal ICI plant in Billingham just across the River Tees from Middlesbrough and I do believe that the green diesel locomotive is a Deltic but I could be wrong and I probably am.
Below is a fabulous British Railways poster utilising a painting of a pithead, probably in County Durham. The long lines of coal wagons being filled are preparing to take the coal to steelworks, power stations and to coal yards for domestic use.
Those were the days, not a dry eye in the house, probably because of the smog.
Isn't nostalgia wonderful.
