The DEAN Book - 'My TRAINS Picture Book'.
First Published in 1959 as Illustrated by W. Baldwin.
The Cornish Riviera Express on the way to Penzance.
The express is hauled by a Western Region "King" Class Locomotive.
An old Pannier Tank shown being watered.
This is one of my favorite pictures from the DEAN Book.
'The Ladybird Book of BRITISH RAILWAY LOCOMOTIVES'.
Published in 1958 the Ladybird Book covers all the main Steam and Diesels.
Shown in the Ladybird Book on page 9 is the West Country Class and Castle Class.
The color images were done from photographs courtesy of BRITISH RAILWAYS.
'The GOLDEN Picture Book of RAILWAYS'.
With Cover Art by T.E.North.
This is a typical page from the Golden Book.
I certainly remember such side-on black and white photos of Locomotives -such as the 'BALTIC' and in motion photos such as the "Flying Scotsman".
I just adore these Books and I am certainly glad that I have been able to replace these books now near sixty years latter. The condition of the Books are excellent - except that the DEAN book has near lost it's spine - however, the content pages are in superb condition.
I count myself very fortunate indeed.
Until next time....
