STEAM TO THE WEST

Steam Railway (UK) - - CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE -

• 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)
