T. E. Williams: The Lost Colour Collection Volume 3

The late Tom Williams, photographer and Great Western enthusiast, born in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1930, is best known for his extensive black-and-white photographic work, donated to the National Railway Museum in York by his family after his untimely death at the age of forty nine in 1980. His little-known 35mm colour transparency work, however, was retained by his youngest son, Owen and has been under restoration since May 2014 by his eldest son, Phillip. Seen in print for the first time in the books ‘T.E.Williams: The Lost Colour Collection Volumes 1 & 2’ published during 2017, this third volume revisits Tom’s unique colour archive. Although centring on the Western Region of British Railways, around the idyllic Warwickshire and Cotswold countryside, we are also treated to locations as diverse as Bristol, Reading, New Barnet, Twyford, Eastleigh and Crew, to name but a few. We also have a chapter dedicated to the challenging section of main line between Newton Abbot and Plymouth. We believe that this volume will sit proudly, not just on any discerning steam enthusiast’s bookshelf, but with its large and detailed colour plates will also provide invaluable information for any serious railway modeller.
