The Railway Tavern (2) - sign, 65 White Hart Lane, Tottenham, London N17
The fading sign of the closed Railway Tavern. The name is because it is nearby to White City Lane Railway Station. The brewers Charles Wells, of Bedford, still exist but they are now Wells & Young's following a merger.

The locomotive on the sign appears to be a painting of Great Western Railway Star class 4-6-0 locomotive no. 4038 "Queen Berengaria". It was built at Swindon in 1911 to a design by G J Churchward, and withdrawn in April 1952. A similar locomotive no. 4003 Lode Star survives at the National Railway Museum in York. Queen Berengaria was the wife of King Richard I the Lionheart. It would be interesting to know what was depicted on the previous sign as the pub is much older than the loco!
