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
