A designer of fabrics, tin, and enamelware, Ian Logan was fascinated by the typography and graphics of the railroad companies.
In the 1960s and 1970s he made hundreds of rail journeys, recording the insignia, the logos, the slogans, and livery of railroad
companies big and small, East and West coast and transcontinental. He even created designs for them. Jonathan Glancey, FRIBA
