    I've started my collection of the green books

    Published by the RCTS - Railway Correspondance and Travel Society

    Part 9A Tank Engines L1 to N19 arrived today

    [​IMG]

    On the to get list is either a N14 or N15 0-6-2T, so I'm ready for that kit

    On the way are

    Part 5 Tender Engines J1 to J37
    Part 7 Tank Engines A5 to H2 - ready for the C15 build
    Part 2B Tender Engines B1 to B19 - I have an OO gauge B1 to work on at sometime
    Part 8B Tank Engines J71 to J94 - I have a J79 & a J94 to build (and maybe a J83 in the future)

    Some gaps remaining, which I will keep an eye out for as I require them or the price makes it worth my while.

    It took me several years to get them all at sensible prices. I think that the most I paid for a single volume was £10

    Dear Paul,
    the Yeadon's Register is also worthwhile in that every locomotive and its service history (where known ) is included, as are numerous photos.

    I have recently been re reading the two volumes on the Robinson / MM ROD LNER class 04. 2-8-0s,and the photos are really good,

    Regards, Echidna

    Thanks Echidna

    I will add Yeadon's register to the wish list.

    Volume 5 (Tender Engines J1 to J37) and Volume 7 (Tank Engines A5 to H2) have now arrived, not in as good a condition as the 9A, well thumbed, and I'd say the Vol 5 previous owner was a J15 fan, not saying it's been around for a while, but it is a 1966 edition, and cost 45/- (£2.25 or 45 bob in real dosh or 3 shilling over a couple of Gunieas). The Volume 7 is a 1964 edition with a list price of 25/-
