This is one of the “Festival of Britain” group of Designs, first introduced in 1951 for the new range of British Railways Standard coaches (later known as the “Mark 1” fleet).
The main motif in this design is reminiscent of the “Sun’s rays” effect which was often used in the more exuberant Art Deco designs of the pre-war Jazz age.
