Freebies!

I have scanned a number of smaller items but have sold so few it doesn’t justify the effort in creating further printed copies. What I have decided is to make them available for free download: just click the links to open the PDF and you can view, save or print them as you wish. They are not up to the normal standard of my reprinted works but they are clear scans and all information is present.

Timetable amendments

On the 7th April, 1953, the line between Mundesley and Roughton Road Junction (Norfolk) closed. The following notice was issued detailing the timetable changes.

Notice P1082 / F483E, 1953.

Supplement No. 1 to the Winter 1953 Great Eastern section WTTs (Section J, K & L)

ER[GE] Winter 53 WTT Supplement No 1

Supplement No. 4 to the June 1953 Southern Region (London Central) Freight WTT, dated 21st September, 1953.

SR[LC] June 53 Freight WTT Supplement No 4

My Summer 1953 North Eastern Region time tables were quite heavily amended with various alterations from regular supplements. I cleaned them all up but feel that the information shouldn’t be lost so I have created a document in the style of a typical WTT Supplement Notice, giving all the amendments present.

Handbills

Closure of Scalby Station Notice (NER)

Scalby Closure Notice

I have a small number of handbills that I have scanned and combined into a PDF. You are welcome to download this, but do keep a watch as any other handbills that I scan will be added to the PDF (I will alter the file date when I do).

Operating Instructions

I get occasional requests to decipher the meaning of train classifications used in the time tables from the 1950s. To assist everyone, I have copied a special notice issued by the London Midland, when British Railways implemented a standard set of head codes and bell signals in June, 1950. If you have an A3 printer, this will give you the best result (print it double-sided and fold it in half) as printing to A4 may be a little too small to read.

London Midland notice re: Head Codes & Bell Signals

During the early 1950s, the Western Region Civil Engineer obtained a diesel-electric engine, PWM-650, for use in engineering worksites. The operating instructions were provided on an instruction circular, Circular LK256.

Signalling

Nothing to do with time tables! I have a 1964 resignalling drawing for provision of a new siding at Picketts Lock on the Cambridge Main line that is very interesting.
