The golden age of the steam era railway poster has been lovingly re-created by artist, Peter McDermott. He has produced images of iconic Scottish scenes such as Eilean Donan Castle, The Black Cuillin, Glencoe, Edinburgh's Forth Rail Bridge and the PS Waverley (the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world) amongst others.

From 1905 graphic artists such as Norman Wilkinson and John Hassall were used in the design of advertising posters for the British railways.

The most famous of these Railway posters was produced for the Great Northern Railway (GNR) in 1908 by John Hassall. It featured the image of the "Jolly Fisherman", with the slogan, "Skegness is so Bracing".
Wilkinson and Hassall's illustrations inspired a generation and defined the railway poster for the next 30 years.
