Locomotive Alloy Headboard THE CAMBRIAN COAST EXPRESS. The train was inaugurated in 1927 running Fridays and Saturdays from Paddington to Aberystwyth and through coaches to Pwllheli. Journey time was total of 5 hours 35 minutes for the 235 miles from London. In the reverse direction, the train left Aberystwyth at 10:00 am. The train became the 2:00 pm (hourly service) departure from Birmingham to arrive at Paddington at 4:00 pm. Thus the up journey, which took 6 hours, was 25 minutes slower than the down journey This excellent headboard is in pretty much ex loco condition, still retaining some soot around some of the corners, plenty of evidence that this was carried for a long while, the back has the names of other headboards of the same pattern cast into it. An opportunity to acquire a evocative headboard that has not been on the market for over a decade.
