British Rail’s “Blue Blaze First Class” will be instantly associated with the BR mega-region, known as Network SouthEast (NSE). It covered an area stretching from King’s Lynn in Norfolk to Exeter in Devon - even the Isle of Wight and London’s Waterloo and City line. Over 900 stations sported the rather patriotic NSE livery and welcomed trains fitted with this seat moquette, which was applied to trains in their Second Class compartments. Blue with red hatching, it began being used in 1986 and was still First Class seats until 2017. The sheer size of the Network SouthEast region means the original, standard Blue Blaze was used on more trains than any other moquette in history. It was popular for a reason - durable, ageless, utterly pleasing on the eye - and it could find a perfect place in your life too. We stock a range of items made from this beautiful moquette. Take a look at our range for some inspiration.

Cushions are a great way to show off your transport fascination in a really subtle way. We stock a variety of styles to add a touch of nostalgia to any home colour scheme - and being cushions, when you change your room, you can change your cushions! Our home furnishings are beautifully finished with high quality zips and intricate stitching to stand the test of time. Available with a duck feather or hollowfibre inner. The cushions are 40cm x 40cm.

Care Instructions

Moquette is super-duper tough. If it gets a bit dirty, a good firm brush should do the job... For something really stubborn try some carpet cleaner. If in doubt - drop us a line.
