STEAM TO THE WEST
• STEAM MUSEUM OF THE GWR
Great photographs of authentic preservation scenes.
Little of note.
PRICE: £7.50 RATING:
To continue the Western theme – but this time in preservation – STEAM Museum’s calendar offers a superb selection of photographs by Richard Bell, all taken on GWR territory.
Not only are the pictures very good, but whoever selected them clearly has an eye for authentic re-creations of the past as well; with many of the locomotives in BR livery, bearing reporting numbers and hauling appropriate stock, it gives a feel of the Western Region in the latter days of steam. This reviewer’s favourite is a dramatic ‘train in the landscape’ shot of Nunney Castle at Ferryside. (TJ)
