No, but I wish I had.

That does seem a lot to pay - but at the end of the day it's about how much you want something :)

I heard a new edition was proposed 'in the near future' - but that was a couple of years ago - not sure what the status is now.

I've been hanging on for that  :confused1:

I did clock that the original title page had the number 1 in a black star and at on 48 pages believed there had to be more, it would hopefully answer a few questions we have relating to our layout so might just have to bite the bullet, the wife doesn't need to know, does she???  :worried:

I've been looking for a copy for years, but lately have realised I am some considerable way off my dream layout of WR Hydraulics running through Southern Nouveau concrete stations, so it can wait.  I see Nick Tozer Railway Books have one for under 20, so you might want to grab it while you can.

I did contact nick some time ago about his copy for 20 and he said that it was sold and hadn't updated the website so looks like I'll be tracking the 50 one down

Changing the subject somewhat, what do we reckon the possibilities of an NGF library where we all help each other out with photocopies or email attachments relating to various books we all own? I know that we could arrange this through PM but if we could compile a list of books and members who were wanting to join and obviously help each other with what they might need to send just them pages or is this just a too bigger task or even wanted?  I don't know if it's been suggested before whether it already exists or just not allowed.

Fraught with copyright difficulties and we don't want Tank put in the tank  :goggleeyes:

Th odd request for help and PM responses are probably safe enough.

Yeah that's what I thought once started writing the vast amount of time to find what someone would want and get it to them would be unbelievable.

Plus definitely don't want issues relating to copyright infringement and headaches for tank!!!

Well I was lucky enough to get chance to race to the post office today to collect the long awaited highly anticipated book. Only one word for me describes it............

A      MAY      ZIN

We all know a picture paints a thousand words and some photos are close to 100 years old now but the detail and knowledge that we can collect from them is fantastic.

If you ever get the chance to get a copy it will be a very decent book to waste a few hours in. Glad I paid 50 but for me now I have it I would pay 153 as well
