Marvellous Days Out Railway Poster Exhibition Update

The Marvellous Days Out Railway Poster exhibition has finished but we are still keeping the posters, postcards and mugs for sale in the shop for those that missed the train!

We have just taken delivery of this iconic 1930’s styled poster of Knutsford, which will make a fantastic gift for family, friends and work colleagues. Priced at £5 and £10 they come in their own funnels for easy posting. For an extra £5 we can have it framed for you. And there’s an accompanying set of postcards reflecting marvellous days out meandering along the Mid-Cheshire Railway line
