Thornton Heath’s railway station has been graced with  a Lionel Stanhope mural.

Network Rail has been working with the sign writer renowned for his vintage typography work, to paint murals on the railway across the capital.

Lionel,  who works at Elstree Studios painting scenes for TV shows and Hollywood movies including Disneyland, over the Bank Holiday weekend transformed Platform four at the station.

Grangewood Park’s famous white squirrel Walter and Crystal Palace FC mascot Kayla The Eagle feature in the mural.

Local resident Averil Coutinho, a member of the Thornton Heath Community Action Team, has championed the cause of getting one of the murals and designer Vân Dang came up with this design.
