The National Railway Museum in York is the largest of its kind in the world and home to a wide range of railway icons - from the world's fastest steam engine to a lock of Robert Stephenson's hair - and a vast collection of locomotives and engines. The museum also has an exceptional collection of about 8,000 historic railway posters designed to be displayed in waiting rooms, booking offices and on railway platforms. Many of the posters were commissioned from well-known contemporary artists and their vibrant, bold designs still appear fresh and modern to this day. The National Railway Museum Diary 2005 includes a selection of posters which celebrates travel from the UK to the continent of Europe in the golden age of rail travel. Shown on weekly spreads, images of steam trains and boats, and of mountains, castles and lakes, cafes and churches, towns and cities in Denmark, Germany, Holland, Italy, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria and Norway - colourfully evoke a bygone era in this beautiful diary for 2005. Each week has a full-page colour illustration and the diary includes national and religious holidays and astronomical information.
