"RCTS LNER Volumes"

If you have a more than passing interest in the London & North Eastern Railway, I urge you to go and buy some second hand copies of the series known colloquially as the "green series" - Locomotives of the LNER by the Railway Correspondence & Travel Society (RCTS).

I have been reading my copy of Part 2A - Tender Engines, Classes A1-A10 and it has opened my eyes to some amazing possibilities in modelling, particularly unusual livery and tender combinations.

That, and it gives some amazing insight to locomotive developments with a few draft line drawings of some proposed steam locomotives from all the major LNER C.M.Es.

Until next time, when I will hopefully have a bit more progress on my 60503 conversion.
