J.F.Sporting Collectibles Railways Bygone Railway Stations and Architecture 2012 Bygone Railway Stations and Architecture 2012 LT24 - This collection of sepia photographs takes us back to Victoria times when Britain’s railways were at their maximum extent serving virtually every town and village. There are steam engines, gas lamps and passengers in typical dress of the period at stations with platform canopies of a style still familiar to today’s travellers. Major stations such as Carlisle and London’s Victoria are inter-mingled with wayside stations on lines closed long ago – several under Dr. Beeching’s axe in the 1960s, Dulverton and Collompton being cases in point. The backs tell their history and architectural points of interest. Unlike the other pictures, that for Plumtree in Nottinghamshire looks as though it was taken not long before closure in 1949, judging by the locomotive pictured. Size 90 x 64mm

From the great London Termini of Euston, Liverpool Street and Charing Cross to small country stations like Milford, Bulford and Dawlish Warren, we see these as either exterior shots with trains, horse-drawn vehicles etc., or as bustling interiors with trains in steam. Many of the edifices have hardly changed over the intervening years, and the backs make interesting reading. Size 89 x 64mm.

Pattreiouex (Senior Service) Railways British Railways 1938 British Railways 1938 M48 - A look back at the old days of British railways as a golden age and it is easy to see why with this set which was produced in 1938. That year ‘Senior Service Cigarettes’ cost a shilling for twenty and included a free card from this set of 48 which features superb photographs of locos, the travelling post office, a turntable, wind tunnel etc. Among the most dramatic is a photograph titled the ‘Big Five, which pictures five new (in 1938) engines of the ‘Silver Link’ class steamed and ready to haul the Coronation expresses with sound-proofed and air-conditioned coaches. One of these engines 4468 ‘Mallard’ had just set up a new world steam record of 126mph.

Daily Ice Cream Railways Modern British Locomotives 1954 Modern British Locomotives 1954 24 - An excellent set printed in full colour with black frameline and white border. The subject title is printed on the front and there is plenty of information about the loco on the back which we are told is “Courtesy of British Railways”. Train spotters will be pleased to note that the locomotive number as well as its name (where it has one) is shown in the picture. In appearance these look not unlike old cigarette card issues and when this was reviewed in our magazine back at the beginning of 1955 the reviewer said “In fact one might almost say that this set, more than any other post-war trade emission has recaptured the spirit of our pre-1940 sets”. Included are an electric loco No 20003 of the Southern Region, a Diesel-Electric No. 10202, ‘King John’ No. 6026, No. 7012 ‘Barry Castle’, the Jubilee Class No. 45697 ‘Achilles’, No.35028 ‘Clan Line’, the ‘Royal Scott’ No. 46100, the world-record holding ‘Mallard’ No. 60022, No. 70000 ‘Britannia’, a V Class No. 30919 ‘Harrow’ and ‘Longworth Manor’ No. 7826 built in Swindon.

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
