Description

'The George Bennie Railplane System of Transport: Swift, Safe, Sure'. Poster produced for London & North Eastern Railway (LNER) promoting the George Bennie Railplane System, showing the Railplane (a suspended monorail for pasengers set above the existing railway) with a London & North Eastern Railway (LNER) locomotive seen travelling underneath. The project, funded by George Bennie, was set up at Milngavie, East Dunbartonshire, as an experiment but was criticised by engineers and failed because it was poorly planned and carelesly conceived. It was dismantled in 1956. Artwork by WCN who worked for the McCorquodale Studio.
