The Highland Line's famous Drumochter Pass features among London North Eastern Railway's new collection of iconic poster prints celebrating the Azuma fleet.

The collection features seven original illustrated posters of Azuma trains on the LNER route, in stations and at landmark locations from the historic launch dates.

The A3 poster collection features iconic locations such as Leeds, York, Harrogate, Edinburgh Waverley and Lincoln.

It celebrates the introduction of Azuma services to these destinations as part of LNER’s mission to transform communities with their innovative fleet.

Kate McFerran, LNER director of communications, said: “The LNER Azuma poster collection gives those in our communities and who are enthusiastic about the iconic LNER fleet a chance to own a piece of railway history.

“These commemorative posters were hugely popular and much requested when we launched our Azuma services and we’re excited to give enthusiasts the chance to add them to their collection

“The original LNER was well known for its evocative posters and great publicity, so it is wonderful that we can continue this tradition with the release of the Azuma launch collection of posters.”

The posters were designed for the launch of Azuma around the LNER route throughout 2019, and have now been printed for rail fans to enjoy for generations to come.

Anyone can order their copy from the online LNER Shop, which also sells the LNER regionally-inspired face coverings and LNER Cooking for CALM cookbook.
