British Rail Trojan Moquette Christmas Stocking

Regular price £27.95

Tax included.

You can’t help but think of train trips to your auntie’s house by the seaside when you spot a moquette cushion made of Trojan. It was introduced on British Rail’s Kent lines from 1958 and was still used until the 1980s, so it’s earned its place in the moquette hall of fame. Nearly every Mark 1 carriage ever built for British Rail carried the Trojan moquette in its Second (or Standard) Class sections. Red, black, blue, white and yellow lines on a grey background give huge scope to fit the colour scheme of your home, but it’s the nostalgia this moquette conjures up that’s perhaps the most powerful thing about it. If you know Trojan, you probably love it. And if you don’t, why not? It’s a piece of design and textile history.

Put another log on the fire, pour yourself and Santa a glass of Port and let your mind wander back in time to the days when rail travel was truly relaxing and joyful. Anyone who visits your home with a love of transport, an eye for truly iconic design or a happy memory of travelling to see granny will love these. From grandma to your youngest child, everyone has a fond recollection of festive travel to see people they love. What better way to get people talking than seeing these on the fireplace.
