England by Rail Wall Calendar: England by Rail 2017 Wall Calendar's posters compose a snapshot of England's interwar rail travel, a romantic vision of sophisticated country escapes and city grandeur. England's railways were once a rainbow of liveries, but by 1923, some 120 companies became the Big Four.

By 1948, the railways were nationalized.Features travel posters by railPrevious and next month viewsObserves major holidays and moon phases
