Poster, British Railways (Southern Region), 'Signal Success' by Terence Cuneo, about 1962. Depicts an electric multiple unit passing a signal box and approaching a signal gantry at dusk, with a steam locomotive hauling a freight train on an adjacent track. Text reads "Colour-light electric signals speed the handling of trains. The British Railways Modernisation Plan provides for a considerable extension to this type of signalling which works automatically or is controlled from all-electric signal boxes". Beneath the poster at left and right is the British Railways totem logo. Format quad royal, 40 x 50 ins, 1016 x 1270mm. Original artwork is 2008-7273.
