The Committee expressed appreciation of the new pictorial poster produced by Mr.Tonge, who said that a 16 sheet poster (6'8" x 10'0") of the same design would also be placed on hoardings in the towns affected by the new diesel services when the required sites have been negotiated. A line drawing of the diesel unit on the poster will also appear on press advertisements.

Mr.Flake suggested the possibility of mentioning the new Modernisation Plan on the posters, and Mr.Tonge will consider this aspect.

An art folder incorporating a map has now gone to press. This will be used for all diesel schemes, the map being changed to accord with the area concerned.
