London Brighton and South Coast Railway

The London, Brighton and South Coast Railway (known as the LB&SCR or Brighton Line) was formed on 27 July 1846 by the amalgamation of the London & Brighton Railway and the London & Croydon Railway. At its peak the railway formed a triangle with its base along the south coast from Portsmouth to Hastings and its apex in London.

In 1905 the railway acquired two steam railcars from Beyer, Peacock and Company and two petrol railcars from Dick, Kerr & Co.  The poster showing the former dates from this period.  More info on Wikipedia and this website
