Fog Snow Ice Rain Summary

Title - Fog Snow Ice & Rain - trains get you through!.
Artists -
Negus Sharland; Dick Negus (1927-2011) and Philip Sharland (1923-)

- An unusual design of poster, showing all the weather which winter can produce, and suggesting the train was the best way to travel. On the rear is some typewriter wording "Station Master Coalburn 63", suggesting the poster had been sent for display at the small station in the Lanarkshire coalfields of Scotland. Ironically Coalburn station was closed in October 1965, after which passengers would have used the roads rather than trains to get through the winter weather!.
