  • Book – pre-owned – Diesels and Electrics on Shed

    ‘DIESELS AND ELECTRICS ON SHED – Volume One – LMR’ by Rex Kennedy and Oxford Publishing. This pre-owned book dates back to 1979 and being a 96-page hardback, the book itself is is in excellent condition, but the dust cover is a little jaded. The author has gathered a good selection of monochrome photos from depots and stabling points all over the LMR covering the sixties and seventies, from the LMS 10001 to the Class 56. We are offering this book at £10, the proceeds of which will go to the D1010 restoration fund.

  • Book – pre-owned – Early and First Generation Diesels

    “Early and First Generation GREEN DIESELS in photographs” compiled by Brian J. Dickson and published by The History Press in 2020.

    The title and cover of this book is incorrect and misleading, because all of the contents are black and white photos and many of them feature early diesel locos that were painted BLACK, such as the ‘LMS Twins’. So, to avoid disappointment, it is best to mentally delete the word ‘green’ before purchasing and reading. Once inside the book, the photos are very good, mostly late ’50s and very early ’60s, many with fine detail and a lot of interest. This makes for enjoyable reading but given the shortcomings, we are offering this ‘nearly new’ condition book for the sensible price of £10, the proceeds of which will go to the D1010 restoration fund.

    This copy is pre-owned and has been donated to the DEPG for the purpose of raising funds for the DEPG loco fleet. Please help our cause by purchasing this book. Thank you very much !

  • Book – pre-owned – TRIBUTE TO THE FORTYS

    “TRIBUTE TO THE FORTY’S – 1958 to 1986” published by the CLASS 40 APPEAL in 1986.

    This booklet is rather unusual and appears to be quite rare. “TRIBUTE TO THE FORTY’S – 1958 to 1986” is a paperback booklet, A5 in size (21 x 15 cm) with 100 printed pages and more than 200 photographs, all in black and white except those on the cover page. The booklet was published by the CLASS 40 APPEAL in 1986 and was clearly a success because seven members of the class have made it into preservation, including two mainline-registered examples.

    This rare pre-owned booklet has been very kindly donated to the DEPG for the purpose of fund raising, so we are offering it at £15, the entire proceeds of which will go to the D1010 restoration fund. Please help our cause by purchasing this book. Thank you very much !
