The Train Collectors Society has accumulated an archive of about 100,000 model and toy train photos and related information. As well as editing our magazine, the Train Collector, Pat Hammond has been been curating these, identifying and captioning them and generally imposing some order so they will be a generally useful resource. We are making this available in two ways.
First we will each month or so put up a small selection of items from the archive, based on a particular theme, and with a short explanatory note. Each selection will only remain on the site for a few months and then be removed to make way for newer items. The first page is:
And the second set of photos is:
These will only remain up for a limited period, so if you really like the photos, please feel free to download for your personal use (copyright is with the photographer and / or the TCS and material may not be used for commercial purposes without appropriate permission).
Secondly, if you are researching or writing about toy trains or model railways and looking for illustrations please do make contact with Pat Hammond with details of your requirements. He may well be able to find you just the picture!
