Golden Arrow Postcard from the 1950’s from Nick Littlewood

1950's British Railways Southern Region - Golden Arrow Postcard - Nick P Littlewood

Nick Littlewood has been kind enough to send a scanned copy of a 1950’s postcard of the Golden Arrow, that had to be shared!  What a fantastic illustration!  They don’t make them like that any more!  I strongly advise followers of this blog who use twitter to follow Nick  (@NickPLittlewood), as he always has something interesting to post!  Nick has also contributed to other blog posts – be sure to check out King of Kings – 6000 King George V and a Princess in Paddington too.

Many thanks to Nick for sending this in.  Don’t forget, if you have a story, article or pictures that you would like to publish, you can do it here at  Please contact Locoyard if you do (click here!)

Whilst on the theme of the Golden Arrow, we will leave you with the Locoyard’s recreation of this express below, made last year.  Also please check out more images (here) that Nick has sent since this post was published!
