Multiple Working is part of the portfolio Screen. Almond commissioned British Rail to make a cast aluminum nameplate, bearing his own name in the exact type face and form as that used on the InterCity 125 trains. These trains had a diesel locomotive at either end, and were therefore called a ‘multiple coupling’; the title of Almonds’s print also references the fact that prints are multiple.
