First Class Donkey Stripe

The enormous Network SouthEast franchise introduced one of the most loved liveries of all. Red, white and blue was iconic - and looked equally great on a brand new commuter multiple unit or an Isle of Wight ‘tube’ train dating back to the 1930s. But one of the operator’s moquettes was rather more specific - London to Clacton, to be precise. First Class passengers were treated to this - ‘Donkey Stripe’ in orange, black and brown. Horizontal lines of varying widths looked great and wore well. You may also know this design as ‘Jaffa Cake’ for obvious reasons! These exact trains - and this moquette - ended their days operating Regional Railways services out of Manchester. And here we can supply this design in gifts as varied as cushions and coasters to soap bags.
