Replica FR Uniform Buttons
Created with reference to heritage buttons held in the FR Museum collection, but using modern techniques, replica buttons embossed with the Prince of Wales feathers and the words ‘Festiniog Railway’ around the border are available in two sizes and two finishes. Silver (nickel plate) buttons are appropriate to loco crew uniforms and gilt (brass) buttons are appropriate for station and traffic staff; they match the gold braid these grades seem to like! Large buttons (21mm) are for jackets and over coats, small buttons (15mm) are for cuffs and waistcoats. They have an eyelet on the back for attachment.
Ffestiniog Railway Magazine Back Issues
All back issues of the Ffestiniog Railway Magazine, with the exception of issues 2 to 4 and 233 to 236, are available from Roy Cunningham, Festiniog Railway Heritage Sales, 7 Rowan Close, Binley Woods, Coventry, CV3 2JX or through this website. Prices, including postage, are £3.50 each for issues 187 to 232 and £2.50 each for issues 1 and 5 to 186. There is an open waiting list for issues 2 to 4.
Ffestiniog Railway Magazine Binders
Stocks of binders to accommodate the larger magazines issued since No. 192 are running down and we expect to have to impose an increase in the price when new stock is bought. The cardboard postal sleeves accommodate two binders and the cost of posting a pair is only a little greater than for a single binder. Therefore each pair of binders costs £17.00, post paid. Each single binder costs £9.00, post paid.
FR Magazine binder
Pair of FR Magazine binders
All stock of previous sizes has been sold but second-hand binders, to suit earlier sizes of FR Magazines, are sometimes available at £5.00 each, post paid, if they are in good condition. Lower prices may be negotiated if condition is not so good.
Heritage Group Journal Back Issues
Heritage Group Journal Binders
‘Cordex’ Binders to hold twelve issues of the HG Journal are available at £7.50 each.
In response to comments from members about the filing of the early, thinner, Journals we have ordered a limited quantity of binders, only 50, with 18 cords, instead of 12. These, too, are £7.50 each, post paid. If you are ordering by post please make it clear if you are ordering these binders.
The Spooner Album
The Spooner Album was originally a photograph album of the Festiniog Railway put together by the Spooner family in the 1880s. The new, extremely high quality edition of this very attractive album is available now. Click here for more details.
Designed by Michael Seymour these bronze medals were struck in 1982 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the FR Company. £7.00 each.
Where Would Double Track Have Gone?
A CD-ROM showing an early draft of the deposited plans for the 1869 Act, covering approximately two thirds of the line. There are deviations from the present route and a never built tunnel. £5.00 each.
FR Gravity Trains, by Peter Johnson is an A5 booklet containing a series of articles originally published in the FR Magazine with contributions from historians Michael Seymour & Michael Lewis and reminiscences from former employee of the old FR Co. Tom Davies and Will Jones; £1.00 each.
Heritage Group Album contains a very full account, with accompanying photographs, by Philip Vaughan Davies of his involvement with the FR during the period of the ‘takeover’ in 1954-55, together with a series of photographs of the derelict railway, taken in 1954 by John Snell. £2.00 each.
Extended Index for Boyd’s Bible
Jim Hewett and the late Keith Bradbury compiled this extended index to the 1975 edition, and subsequent reprints, of Boyd’s Bible. Sorting is by subject and the list runs to 48 A5 pages, rather more than the one in the book! A real bargain at £5.00 each, post paid.
Unfortunately a similar index for the earlier editions of Boyd, compiled by Hazel Fleming, is now sold out and a reprint is not planned.
A4 reproductions, on 300gsm silk art paper, of the three line engravings in Robert Fairlie’s book Battle of the Gauges Renewed. Ideal for framing, £2.00 per set of three.
