    EMT have done some in the past, they were rectangular and not many were about. Cross Country only did some for a year during the Summer services (ie Newquay to Manchester)

    I did order the Newquay Pride 2018 label from GWR. I was a bit annoyed that at over £18 with postage, the label was only sent in a folded over Jiffy bag and not in a tube or something sturdier. As a result, it had got quite creased up in the post :rolleyes:

    Incidentally, the Flying Banana and other two labels that were on ebay for £200 a couple of months ago and have been relisted multiple times are now down to £100 and are still not selling. What a surprise...

    Just one more question - do the Mark 3A-operated services (Chiltern, TfW and Greater Anglia) have window labels?

    Chiltern briefly used labels when the Mk3 stock was introduced. They certainly don't now. As far as I'm aware, Greater Anglia or their predecessor have never used labels.

    As far is I know, TfW have not used any. Would be nice though. Arriva did do some for services out of Birmingham New Street to Aberystwyth, Pwllheli, Barmouth and Bristol to Waterloo services

    Bang on for what class43165 said
    Although not sure Bristol to Waterloo services haven't seen labels after Network South East days

    Interesting - does that make the 37s in Anglia and the 68s on Chiltern the only services to have no form of destination display on board the train in the country?

    Yes, you are correct but what about the Night Riviera?
    I know that the Scotrail HSTs don't have displays but have done a very small amount of labels showing the destination only, no calling points.

    I think the Night Riveria has (or did have) window labels.
    Interesting about Scotrail though - the most basic form of label!

    I would imagine the the Night Riviera does not have them any more as there are no more HSTs. I think that GWR should do some for the Castle sets.

    Have you tried searching for "destination labels" instead?
