The Golden Arrow 1926

Oil on canvas 54 x 73 cm

Categories: ,


The Golden Arrow was two trains – one carrying passengers from London to the Channel, and the other onwards from Calais to Paris. The inaugural French service was in 1926, and here we see a Nord SuperPacific of the first series in chocolate livery, with a beautiful matching train in chocolate-and-cream. Note the classic container truck for large amounts of luggage.
