A delightful paper ticket for the reduced cost “conveyance of One Bicycle at Owner’s Risk Accompanied by Passenger” on the London Midland and Scottish Railway for 9 shillings, sixpence. The ticket, which is entirely unused and in remarkable condition, features a charming engraving of a bicycle. It is stamped with the number 3379, and the verso includes the terms and conditions. The London Midland and Scottish Railway, which was founded in 1923, was formed by the conglomeration of three other railway firms and operated until Rail Nationalisation in 1948. Comprising a large number of other ventures, it was the world’s largest transport organisation, the largest commercial enterprise in the British Empire, and the UK’s second largest employer after the Post Office.
