I do, thanks. There's a reason for the aesthetic being similar. A small number of artists dominated the market for all kinds of posters, at the time. One of the foremost artists for the EMB was Charles Pears, who also did many transport related posters, particularly maritime. The attached image combines ships & trains, and is exactly the same style.

@fitheach I've got one here of Beverley Minister by Kenneth Steel and Northern Railways. Similar in style to Charles Pears. It's beautiful. No idea why we haven't put it up anywhere.

I found examples online, they're not cheap. Looks nice, though.

@fitheach Hah. Mines a replica. I think I paid about a fiver for it - it’s nice though.
