Hello folks

As some of you know I am in the process of redesigning brass kit for the LNER silver jubilee.

I am having trouble finding detail shots of the windows. Spacifically the sliding top windows. I am not really satisfied with the origional design and if any of you have any pictures that would be relevant i would be most greatfull.

Glad I could help!

I unreservedly recommend the Crawley volume to any LNER modellers out there.

It is full of high quality B&W images, beautifully printed, and a fascinating reference. There are detailed footplate shots for a number of classes, an excellent section on Humourist's various smokebox incarnations, even reproductions of the publicity booklets for The Silver Jubilee, Coronation and West Riding Limited.

Cheers.

I got my copy (1st Edition) via Henry Wilson books in 2001. The proprietor, Harry, was aware I was interested in good quality photos of The Coronation, and in this book there are a couple of very nice shots including one of The West Riding Limited showing painting details on the coach ends. Harry was true gentleman, and looked after me even though I was a half a world away and didn't spend a King's Fortune with him. He was not in good health the last I know, but Henry Wilson Books is still trading.

I had a look through my stuff and could only find general shots, however, one source which almost certainly has a good source of photos is the BBC hulton picture library.

Any help?

I think you will find they were chrome plated as well ... most of the external bright bits were done that way ...it is the 30's and Decco era after all
