Books on GCR/CLC Rolling Stock

Post by GWRSwindon » Wed Nov 06, 2019 4:27 am

I've been looking for books on Great Central Railway and Cheshire Lines Committee rolling stock, and hoped I could find some recommendations here. Other than the relevant portions of Tatlow for wagons, what is out there?

Not a fat lot, I'm afraid.

CLC wagons have been covered in the LNER Society Journal using the late Bob Miller's research.

There is a Great Central carriages book in preparation, but I don't believe it is due any time soon.

There are a few drawings in George Dow's three volume History.

But, as JW says, not a lot really.

In Great Central Album, also by George Dow (Ian Allan), there are two photos.
One is a part image of a CLC brake van (No.1A), and the other of a distinctive CLC tarapulin.

There are some photos of CLC coaches in Britain's Joint Lines by H C Casserley, and also a photo of one of the CLC Sentinel railcars. There is also a description of the livery and numbering system used post-grouping.

I originally bought this book new on the Great Central Railway back in 1970 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/123958539773 as part of a whole series of 'Railway Album' books on the big four and their constituency companies pre-grouping and published by Ian Allan all in hardback although to my knowledge none of the Album series were ever re-published in the intervening 50 years?.

Here is also the LNER Album Vol.1 which I also bought around the same time as the Great Central Railway Album in 1970- https://productimages.worldofbooks.com/B001UB9HVG.jpg

Thank you John, do you know who is writing this book, or who will be publishing it once completed?
