Poster produced for London Midland & Scottish Railway (LMSR) to promote the comfortable design of the rail company's carriages. The poster shows a cut-away illustration which draws attention to advantages such as heater control within each compartment, larger windows for better observation, air extractors and ventilators and different types of springs and shock absorbers to ensure a smooth journey. The 'In Perspective' series of posters was designed to promote the rail company's rolling stock, tracks and signalling and routing system.
