Bill Finch Portfolio of Locomotive Details

Front Cover of Bill Finch Portfolio

This acclaimed Portfolio is based on about 43 pages of very detailed dimensioned sketches prepared by Bill for the construction of his prize-winning 5in gauge model of the ‘Improved Precedent’ Class loco Miranda, now housed in the National Railway Museum. There are two further pages of published engineering drawings, Crewe Works General Arrangements of the loco and the standard Webb 1800 gallon tender and several further pages of photographs of the model and of original locos. This valuable work has long been out of print, but thanks to developments in digital printing it is now possible to produce short runs of high-quality printing at very moderate cost, and this is the Society’s first publication to be produced in this way. Save for some very minor corrections Bill’s sketches and the text are unchanged. Some of the original photos were unavailable and have been replaced, and some new ones added, with the cover and five inside pages printed in colour. 58 pages inside, A4 size, ISBN 978-0-9570158-1-4. Perfect bound with square back and titled spine.

The retail price is £10.50, and the price to members £7.90 including UK postage. Please order from the Distribution Officer in the usual way, quoting your membership number.
