Private-Owner Wagons in Colour for the Modeller and Historian (For the Modeller & Historian)
This new title in the ever popular ‘Power of’ series looks in detail at Bulleid’s Light Pacifics, which were designed by Oliver Bulleid as a lighter weight alternative to the ‘Merchant Navy’ class which, although popular, proved too heavy for the Southern Railway’s secondary and branch routes. The class was intended primarily for express and semi-fast passenger trains in Southern England, ranging from the channel ports of South East England to the West Country resorts of South West England. As an extra design challenge for Bulleid, the new class had to be equally adept at both freight workings and branch line stopping trains, both of which required low axle loading, and a good turn of speed. The first of the new locomotives was the ‘West Country’ class which appeared in 1945. A total of 66 were constructed along with a further 44 designated as the ‘Battle of Britain’ class, of which the first appeared in 1946. The locomotives were built at Brighton and Eastleigh – over half of the class were named after places in the West Country served by its trains or close to its lines, and the rest took their names from RAF Squadrons, airfields, commanders and aircraft that participated in the Battle of Britain over Kent. As with the earlier ‘Merchant Navy’ class, a programme of rebuilding was instituted by BR in the 1950s although not all of the Light Pacifics were converted before the programme ceased. Of the 110 locomotives built, no fewer than 20 survive in preservation. A major claim to fame of this class was that on 30 January 1965, the un-rebuilt No 34051 Winston Churchill hauled the funeral train of its namesake from London Waterloo to his final resting place, close to Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.Written by well respected author Gavin Morrison this new title covers the class in depth with a wealth of illustrations showing them at work from Southern Railway days through post-1948 Nationalisation and into preservation. It is a comprehensive and detailed work of reference for all enthusiasts and railway historians.
Jay Gould Railroad Car, Jefferson, Texas Historical Marker
Built in 1888 by the American Car & Foundry Company of St. Charles, Missouri, this was the private railway car of Jay Gould (1836-1892). A native of New York, Gould was a noted financier and the owner of numerous railroad companies, including the Union Pacific, The Missouri Pacific, the International & Great Northern, and The Texas Pacific. This car, named "Atlanta," remained in Gould family ownership until the 1930s. Elaborately designed and elegantly furnished, the Atlanta features two observation rooms, four staterooms, two baths, a butler’s pantry, kitchen, dining room, and office. Interior materials include mahogany and curly maple woodwork, silver bathroom accessories, and crystal light fixtures. Following Jay Gould’s death in 1892, the car was used by his son, George Jay Gould (president of the Texas and Pacific Railroad), and his wife, actress Edith Kingston. The car later was brought to Texas from St. Louis and used as a family residence during the 1930s East Texas oil boom. Purchased in 1953 by the Jessie Allen Wise Garden Club, it was moved to this site in 1954. It remains a focal point in Jefferson’s heritage tourism industry.
