A Blast from The Past….

This post has been migrated from the Branch blog that was in use between 2008 and 2013. Consequently, there may be minor visual irregularities in how this post is displayed.

Our paddler is 61 years old this year – the picture above shows her at Dunoon during her first year in service for the London & North Eastern Railway (LNER).

During the winter of 1947-48 Britain’s railways were nationalised and as a result Waverley took on the buff funnel colours of her new owners – The British Transport Commission.

The image is taken from a medium format negative taken by Hugh Climie.
