This poster was produced for the LNER to promote the service, which travelled at an average speed of 67mph. It shows the A4 class locomotive 'Silver Link' with the 'Silver Jubilee' train on a ground of silver, blue and red, with the timetable for services between London, Darlington and Newcastle, and the legend "Average throughout speed 67.08 m.p.h" at bottom right.
