Granose Railways 150 Years of British Locomotives 1980 150 Years of British Locomotives 1980 M20 - This is a lovely set which covers locomotive developments from a replica of Stephenson’s Rocket of 1829 right through to a Inter-City 125 high speed train. The colour pictures are mostly taken at the National Railway Museum in York and include a North Eastern Bo-Bo electric loco of 1904, a G.W.R 2-8-0 of 1905, a Class A4 named Sir Nigel Gresley in tribute to the great engineer, a British Rail Class 9F ‘Evening Star’, 1960 diesel-electric, and Class 50 1967 diesel-electric. The backs give the type, date of operation and name of the locomotive concerned and tells you that “there is more fascinating information regarding this locomotive printed on a colour project poster which is obtainable by sending a 12p stamp with your name and address…” What is nice about this set is the number of diesel-electric trains which are sadly missing from a lot of train sets. The cards are size 77 x 58mm.

Barbers Tea Railways Locomotives 1953 Locomotives 1953 25 - These contain excellent colour pictures of British railway engines including 1950s British Rail loco Britannia as well as famous pre-war designs such as the “Coronation” and “Schools” class and including our old friend “Flying Scotsman” which was built in 1928. The authoritative backs are a mine of useful information, for instance we learn that engines of the “Atlantic” class type of 4-4-2 formerly used by the Great Northern Railway have all been broken up except for one preserved in the York Railway Museum or that the “King Arthur” class engines were introduced in 1925. These were originally issued with Barbers teas and an album was available at the time to house these cards. A fine railway set with cards size 68 x 36mm
