The Golden Arrow was the Southern's most prestigious train and was arguably second only to the Flying Scotsman in fame. This 1946 advert is for this Pullman cross-channel service which ran from London's Victoria Station to Gare du Nord in Paris.

The advert mentions the new Trianon Bar, a converted twelve-wheel Pullman coach and the short sea crossing Dover-Calais by the SS Canterbury. The Canterbury was originally a first-class only vessel and was subsequently modified to accommodate other classes of passenger, which illustrates how use of the Golden Arrow changed over its life.
