Exhibition train


The ultimate exhibition train. But where is the picture from?

It’s ages since BTWT ran a competition. Our last one stumped everyone of our 500 or so readers. It was taken on the extensive internal railway system of the Gdansk shipyard sometime in the 1950s. Our correspondents penetrate the security systems of some of Poland’s most interesting rail-connected places!

I have a soft spot for exhibition trains, particularly since the day I discovered a closed Blandford Forum station with its trackwork almost complete when it was being used as a base for BR’s exhibition train subsidiary. So as a taster for our next competition, who will be the first to tell us where the above picture is from? Look closely. That’s a clue!

    This is too easy! It’s a still from the film Closely Observed Trains.
