Poster produced for the Railway Executive Committee (REC) during the Second World War. Between 1939 and 1945, two Flying Scotsmen services were run in each direction, but pasenger numbers were overwhelming. Officially the service operated to an eight-hour schedule, but with bombing and an overcrowded rail network, journeys could take 16 hours or more. As official propaganda put it, all you could do was 'keep calm and carry on'.
