Steam Railway (UK) - - CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE -

• BA­HAMAS LO­CO­MO­TIVE SO­CI­ETY

Evoca­tive 1950s scenes. Lim­ited space for notes on dates.

PRICE: £5.00 (plus £1.50 P&P) RAT­ING:

Start­ing with a suit­ably snowy scene of its ‘Ju­bilee’ No. 45596, the BLS presents its an­nual fare of black and white pho­tog­ra­phy.

Par­tic­u­lar high­lights are ‘A4’ Dwight D. Eisen­hower con­trast­ing with an ‘E4’ 2-4-0 at Cam­bridge; dou­ble­headed ‘Direc­tor’ 4-4-0s fill­ing up at wa­ter troughs, which is rightly de­scribed as “spec­tac­u­lar”; and a view of two Bri­tish Trans­port Po­lice at Eus­ton with the inau­gu­ral ‘Cale­do­nian’, which is a de­light­ful pe­riod piece.
