Is anyone familiar with the reprints of historical railway documents produced by "Dragonwheel" that now appear to be out of print?

London & North Western Railway Appendix to the Working Time Tables, August 1911, Sections (N) to (R), (N) - Shropshire Division, (O) - Central Wales ... Railway (Dragonwheel Speciality Reprints) Spiral-bound – 1 Aug 2007.

With reference to the above example does anyone have a copy? If so what does (O) say about the working of the Central Wales Season Excursion to Blackpool and the return working Blackpool to Swansea. What does (N) say about the working of the Merthyr to Blackpool excursion and the return working? Alternatively does anyone have a suitable Working Time Table for July, August and September that might show these excursions?

Many thanks.

The Appendix won't help you. It has lists of facilities, margins for regulating, working instructions etc. Ie permanent information that staff needed to work the line.

What you need is the WTT for July & August 1911. Southern Central and North Eastern sections are available at Kenilworth. I believe one of our members has a complete volume but for confidentiality reasons I won't put his name on here. Please send me a message off-list.
