Network Rail has announced that it’s station team at Bristol Temple Meads, Reading and London Paddington have thanked the public for their support after dozens of railway themed rainbows were sent after an appeal was launched earlier this month.
The Railway Rainbows project was launched on April 7.
Railway Rainbows follow a similar initiative where many people across the country are drawing rainbows and displaying them in their windows.
Station teams are asking for people to carry on sending them in.
All the drawings received will be put up at the stations for the length of the coronavirus crisis.
Entrants are asked to include their name, age and which station they would like their artwork to be displayed.
To enter your artwork, share on Twitter with @networkrailwest using the hashtag #RailwayRainbows or email it to [email protected]
