Description

"This is the Night Mail crossing the border/Bringing the cheque and the postal order..."

W.H. Auden's poetry and music by Benjamin Britten brought to life the GPO Film Unit's classic 1936 film.

This stunning metal sign celebrates the spirit of the London Midland and Scottish Railway's travelling Post Office en route from London to Glasgow.

Hauled by 5278, an Armstrong Whitworth built Stanier Black Five, our 'Night Mail' pounds over a canal somewhere in the Midlands, the windows of the mail vans glowing as the staff busily sort letters and parcels for the morning deliveries.

Of course, the 1936 film directed by Harry Watt and Basil Wright 'starred' 6115 Scots Guardsman, a parallel-boilered Royal Scot but Stanier's famous Black Five looks just the part in this evocative scene.

Available in three sizes, all come pre-drilled for easy mounting.
