EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from 1937 showcases the bustling atmosphere of Crewe Works, a prominent railway engineering facility operated by the London, Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS). The poster, skillfully created by artist Lili Rethi, offers a glimpse into the intricate process of building a Coronation class engine. In the foreground, dedicated workers can be seen meticulously assembling various components to bring this magnificent locomotive to life. The image not only captures the technical expertise and precision required in constructing these powerful engines but also highlights the teamwork and camaraderie among engineers at Crewe Works. As some individuals diligently paint the bodywork of another locomotive in the background, it is evident that every detail matters when it comes to creating these marvels of transportation. With its vibrant colors and attention to detail, this vintage railway poster transports us back to an era when steam engines ruled supreme. It serves as a testament to both human ingenuity and industrial progress during the 1930s. This remarkable piece from NRM/Pictorial Collection is sure to captivate railway enthusiasts and history buffs alike with its depiction of Crewe Works' significant contribution to Britain's rich rail heritage.
