How long since the last blog???!!!
First of all, the good news. The site will be continuing for another year. It still doesn't recover it's costs, but many thanks to those who have bought photos. All purchases help (still at 40p each - no price rises for 2013!).
Secondly, there's more good news. More photos will be scanned and added over the coming months. Hopefully, a few holes will be plugged.
And talking of plugging holes, I now have access to the railway photographs of my dear old friend and fellow gricer Peter James. Peter passed away a few years back leaving a fine collection of 35mm B&W and colour pictures. So these will feature as a separate collection (dedicated to his memory) and will concentrate on the many subjects that I didn't cover - Deltics, Welsh Narrow Gauge and the threat of closure of the Settle & Carlisle line to name just a few. Mostly from the 70's & 80's, but we may just dip into the end of steam era.
If anyone comes across, or has photo collections for disposal, I am willing to consider giving them a good home and possibly feature some of the pictures on this site. Please let me know.
Please show your appreciation of this site by purchasing the odd print or two. Times "is hard guv'nor" and any contributions are very much appreciated. If each visitor bought just one photo, I'd be a very happy bunny. If each blog reader bought 2 photos, I wouldn't be typing this!
