Golden Rail Express by ekster Golden Rail Express by ekster
In the spirit of the railway express travel posters from the art deco period, I decided to create my own: The Golden Rail Express.
I kept details to a bare minimum to emphasize the strong lines that make up the overall imagery and to stay true to the form. The train itself is roughly based on the Zephyr trains of that time period too, but I gave it a few of my own personal details.

Enjoy!

This is very good. Reminds me of those really old retro-style posters they used to get people to ride on trains

There's only one thing you still need: you need to print this onto a tin plate, and then hang it up all over town. See if people start asking about the train.
