Every year, East Midlands Railway mark Armistice Day to remember the fallen heroes with services of Remembrance at Nottingham and Derby railway stations.
Supporting The Veteran’s Charity, they have created special ‘Routes of Remembrance’ Lanyards for employees and applied a vinyl to a cl222 train, which can be seen travelling on their Intercity Route.
This year, they have collaborated with local artist, Mel Langton and eight community groups across the East Midlands to create unique artwork installations for this year’s Remembrance Day. The project has been jointly funded by EMR, Community Rail Network and six Community Rail Partnerships across the East Midlands.
The eight individual pieces will travel across the East Midlands by rail and will be installed to create one large piece of art at both Nottingham and Derby railway stations. When the pieces come together, they will cleverly create a new piece of artwork. The collective piece will be on display by the war memorials, in time for the services on Armistice Day (Friday 11th November). You can see the collective piece below.
Our sincerest thanks to the wonderful team at EMR for their continued support and to everyone involved in creating such a wonderful tribute to the fallen
