Updated 15th April. Eastern & Southern steam and Cl.40s feature. Follow us on Twitter & Facebook.
Just a reminder that we are now on Twitter and Facebook. New this month are around 200 black & white pictures, many of these being of LNER subjects whilst the new steam images feature the Southern region although followers of all the regions should find something of interest. A special subject this month is of trains which include cattle wagons. For modern Traction enthusiasts Class 40s feature prominently. We are still looking for more collections- please help by contacting us if you know of any slides or negatives looking for a good home. In the next few weeks there will be a sale of secondhand slides which will be advised by newsletter and we also have a very special project underway- watch this space!
