Poster produced for British Railways (BR) to publicise the war effort. The pasenger train on the left gives way to the one on the right which is loaded with cannons. From June 1940, East Coast shipping was heavily cut back, and much of this freight was transferred onto the East Coast Main Line. On some sections, traffic rose by 500%.
