Jump aboard and head back to Devon’s past … with our pick of vintage railway posters

Posted on

Take a rail journey into the past with our pick of nostalgic train posters advertising the popular tourist destination of Devon. Just read on for some of the best vintage prints. And if you fancy heading off on a seaside break, don’t forget to check our journey planner to find cheap train tickets too.

1. Devon’s reputation as a holiday hot-spot was sealed with the development of the Great Western Railway. And in 1923 – 1947, they already knew that taking the train to the sunny South-West was just the ticket.

 

 

 

 

 

2. In 1946, these stylish couples were showing people you don’t need to go abroad for some seaside fun – just hop on the train to the ‘international resort’ of Torquay.

 

 

 

 

 

3. It’s not all just sea and sand in Devon though – this 1937 Great Western Railway poster tempted rail travellers by giving them a taste of the wild beauty of Dartmoor, as well as some great cheap fares.
