Jellicoe Express Jellicoe Express + Asquith Xavier

Plaque: Jellicoe Express

Erection date: 5/12/2017


The Jellicoe Express, 1917 - 2017
The Royal Navy train known as the Jellicoe Express departed from here. From 1917 it ran daily between London and Thurso during both world wars. It was named after Admiral Sir John Jellicoe and carried service personnel to and from Naval bases around the country, including Scapa Flow.

This memorial is dedicated to the men and women who travelled and worked on it.

This memorial was sponsored by Caldedonian Sleeper.
This plaque was designed and produced in Orkney by AOP, Another Orkney Production.

From Railscot: 19 of these plaques have been installed at: Euston, Crewe, Preston, Carlisle, Hawick [2nd] (apparently now a leisure centre), Galashiels, Edinburgh Waverley, Inverkeithing, Perth, Kingussie, Aviemore, Inverness, Dingwall, Alness, Invergordon, Tain, Helmsdale, Forsinard and Thurso. Most of these were unveiled in 2017 to celebrate the centenary.
