Description

Pasengers were offered a wide choice, including pineapples, grapes, apples and oranges, but the customers were encouraged to eat only fruit from the British Empire! By the 1920s most train services had buffet cars although those trains travelling shorter distances did not. Pasengers could also buy cakes, drinks or sandwiches on station platforms.
