Ian Allan's 20th Century Railways

book

An Ian Allan Railway ABC inventory from 1942 onwards. Revised April 2016. Richard Cunningham, Richmond, Virginia, USA A retired Brit from USA, returned to his teenage passion - UK railways, with a particular affection for the Ian Allan ABC series and the Platform 5 publications. I have a complete collection of their spotters books from 1942, the subject of my first book. I also enjoy restoring ABCs. I am an enthusiastic ebay buyer of old and damaged Ian Allan railway books. I started to sell restored copies in January 2011. I make no claims about their investment value although I hope they will come to be regarded as great value collectors items in their own right; items which are accessible to folks with a limited budget. I lovingly restore them. Quality restored editions are very pleasing to own and to handle without fear of spine damage and they come with the option to return them in a timely manner for a full refund. I have restored 104 with 100% satisfaction as at the end of June 2013.

After The Grouping
1949-1989

Locomotives at The Grouping 1965-67.

These are companion volumes to "British Railways Steam Locomotives from Nationalisation to Modernisation" 1967 (see page 162), covering the 1923 grouping period. This series lists and describes every locomotive taken over from the pre-Grouping companies by the Big Four - the SR, LNER,LMS and GWR. The two series of publications provide a complete list of virtually every steam locomotive owned by BR from pre-Grouping times to the time of going to press in 1967.

Ketnotes :
This series was first published in hardback from 1965-1967. All four were reprinted in paperback with new covers in 1974. Although not actually ABCs, they served exactly the same purpose, listing in detail all locomotives employed by 'The Big Four' at the time of the Grouping, complete with former numbers, names, and b/w photos. An interesting observation is that the LMS code is clearly incorrect in that it suggests a publication date of June 1999. It should read /DXX966.

The ABCs - Locoshed Books 1950-85.

Locoshed Books listed all locomotive numbers (not names) alongside the code for the particular shed to which the locomotive was allocated at the time. Often grubby and dog-eared, for many spotters a locoshed book was a regular pocket companion, a tool for identifying cops when in the field. For many spotters, it represented a cheaper complete record of locos, an alternative to a relatively expensive CV. Locosheds were regularly re-issued, reflecting the volume and frequency of shed transfers. Spotters often updated those records - one reason why unmarked copies are so scarce and highly prized. Photos of locos were first included in 1969 and from 1966 to 1971, several locolog style lined pages were included for spotting notes.
