It is a striking rendering of the "Winged Messenger" (Hermes /
Mercury)
- suggesting speedy delivery. Used by transport and transport fuel
businesses.

As for a direct railway example,

That one makes me immediately think of Icarus, which is most certainly
*not* what the LMS had in mind!

Hermes is usually shown with winged sandals or hat.


Indeed - but I couldn't find anything nearer to do with railways.

Yet, I'm sure that that deco style railway club loco was used in the
30s - maybe.* National Benzole?


Well spotted, the head anyway.

Oh, more than the head. See:

But I'm sure that I've seen a blend of the art deco-ised winged helmet
and the rest as a waiter image for a swanky 30s restaurant.* Serving an
impossibly long-legged blonde.


That rings a bell!


Serving up a steam locomotive is original, though !
