I have acquired over 2,500 railway and other transport postcards which are not on my website yet. If you are after any particular cards especially those featuring locomotives, trains, lines, national or heritage rail companies, please send me an email of your wants. I will then give you details of any cards that may be of interest, without obligation. My prices are very affordable.

If you want several items, email me for a discount!

UK Buyers of small items may find the postage high as the PayPal button only offers one price world-wide whatever the size. If so email me first so I may look to reduce the charge.

Railway Image:
Vintage postcard, Rugby Station Signal Gantry, c1900.

Postcard printed before 1922. The London and North Western Railway built this gantry with high level repeaters as a girder bridge built by the Great Central to carry the London Extension over the LNWR in front of the signals obscured existing signals. The Great Central had to build, at its own expense, this huge set of new signals. However in poor visibility the top level could not be seen, so the lower signals were still necessary. The L&NWR ceased business in 1922, the gantry lasting until 1939. The card is a little scruffy with faint shadows near the corners, visible on the image. The card has clearly been glued into an album during its life. It is postally unused and shows the badge of the L&NWR, verso, by whom it was published. A special, unusual and sought after card.
