First....the website catalogue will be closing in three months. It will finish on January 1, 2018. No more books currently on the catalogue will be available after that and the catalogue will be removed, so if you want any of them, order them before that date. Secondly, and more importantly, the offer of refunds will officially end on the same date. So, just like a PPI, if you have previously had a magazine subscription or book order and want a refund, please do it before this date, otherwise I will not honour it.
As the new website is not yet ready, I've decided to keep this one going until the new year. Also, the website will be removed as of January 1, 2018 I find it chunky and difficult, my new website will be made available to people via various forums and will have a link from here. So, those with orders outstanding need not worry. Times are a changing and Adrian's legacy is being replaced. I want to get all the remaining books out before I close this down.
WESTERNS VOL. 3
Just to clarify about Westerns Vol. 3 Plans are in hand to get this out as soon as. But I keep getting hassled by people asking why it has taken so long. Well, for the record, all the early pics had faded, yellow skies, not true colours, there were no negs, so every picture and there are a lot, has had to be photoshopped correctly to get some semblence of normality back into the pictures. This has taken an immense time and frankly, I wouldn't have bothered. This process is nearing the end, but it has been a mammoth task which Sam virtually did on his jack jones. A book could have been out two years ago, but you would have all panned it with skies resembling nothing like reality. Hope that explains the majority of the reason for the delay.
MESSAGE FROM ADRIAN
Adrian has asked me to post the following message, which although slightly late, is well meant.
“I discovered today that Shopping Control Paddington legend and the man who chose D1017-20 to go without air brakes, Mike Stephens, passed away on Boxing Day last year. While it may be some time since then, I would like to pay tribute to a man who welcomed me into his home and told me the vacuum brake story along with many others. He was a gentleman and always provided answers to my research during the numerous times I wrote to him. He always gave me his time and was a font of knowledge about how the Westerns were shopped and at which times. He was also most helpful when I visited the shopping control office at Paddingyon in 1979. I shall never forget his help or his pipe smoking. May you rest in piece Mike and thankyou for everything, including the Swindon records you so generously gifted to me”.
The Class 22 and Tracks of My Years have now both been added to the Book Catalogue
with a print-to-order 28-day turn around as well.
