British Rail - Introducing Awayday
Take a trip with off-peak away day travel.
Advert 1972 1 mins
See the sights and travel the country with British Rail’s Away Day off-peak travel offers. Find a sunny spot by the sea or visit that museum you always wanted to. British Rail’s away day ticket offers were designed to fill the off-peak trains in the days when many off-peak services travelled with very few seats filled. A bright and fun series of adverts ran throughout the 1970s on this theme.
