• Kentish Belle Pullman by Steve Wyse

Bulleid Battle of Britain class locomotive No. 34070 'Manston' is seen climbing towards Sole Street station with the London bound Kentish Belle Pullman service.
The Kentish Belle was the named Pullman train run by the Southern Region of British Railways from 1951 until withdrawal in 1958 due to the impending electrification of the North Kent Coast main line the following year. Leaving London Victoria at 11:35am, it called at Whitstable, Herne Bay, Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate. The return service departed Ramsgate at 5:30pm.
This all-Pullman train, had its origins in the 'Thanet Pullman Limited', introduced by the South Eastern & Chatham Railway in 1921 and withdrawn in 1928. 
From 1951, three coaches were detached at Faversham and ran separately through to Canterbury East, and the train's title was changed from 'The Thanet Belle' to 'Kentish Belle'. The Canterbury service was withdrawn after its first year, but the name 'Kentish Belle' was retained.

High quality signed giclée print on high-grade paper stock.
