The publication is illustrated by many period photographs and by several superb paintings by the renowned artist Gerald Broom. Period maps and photographs of models of period stock are also used to supplement the text.136£20

The 42ft Carriages of Richard Bore

Photograph of portfolio/book Front page
AuthorDescriptionPagesPrice
Richard Ball and Peter ChathamBased on meticulous research, mainly into LNWR original company documents, Richard Ball has produced a highly detailed history of these distinctive carriages, as they were originally built on F W Webb’s radial underframes, and as in many cases subsequently rebuilt to run on bogies. Almost 50 photographs are included, many of them from the Society’s collection, with company diagrams and drawings of most of the types described. Because of the paucity of official carriage drawings from this period, many of them have been specially produced for the book by Peter Chatham. The side and end views are reproduced at a scale of 6mm to 1 foot, which is as large as allows the side views to be fitted across a page.over 50£15
