Poster produced for British Railways (BR) to promote the company's ongoing programme of modernisation. The poster shows the Temple Mills freight Marshalling Yard, near Leyton, north-east London. An image of the 'Hump Cabin' is shown above a plan indicating the network of branching and interconnected lines where freight trains could be asembled from individual trucks. The 'Hump' was a mound over which wagons were shunted, to couple with other vehicles, upon which the newly made-up train could move down into the departure sidings. Arwork by F Donald Blake. Dimensions: 1010 mm x 1260 mm.
