We saw those earlier, and Roxanne declared she really liked the Gojira one a couple of times.  So that's on order for her birthday!

His 'See Bavaria' movie inspired one is brilliant too.

Aaaarrgh, pity about the literal translation of "Japanese Government Railways", should be "鉄道省".

Is it possible the old JGR posters had the same mistake?

Actually digging about a bit (looking for "鉄道省 ポスター") they seem to bear the name "○○鐵道局", i.e. the name of the regional office issuing the poster.

 

"日本の政府鉄道" is certainly rather odd usage in that context, sounds like a literal translation by a non-native speaker (and makes it sound like the Japanese Government has a railway for its own use).

Thanks Squid!  Sounds like the artists didn't have the benefit of a native speaker (or a train fan) when making that part of the poster.

Well, of course they have a railway for their own use, or at least for the use of the Japanese branch of the U.N.G.C.C.
