Yes - I think so too. Notice the different sizes of the spectacle plates? Were there be many other engines where they weren't the same?

Six nice Great Central Railway postcards. I seem to remember that a while back on the Modellers threads that someone was having trouble finding good colour images of the Great Central livery for locos.

These two came into my hands today. Two of the Dennis Publications (Scarborough) Collectors set.

Must be from York Museum a while ago because I can't remember them. However, really nice shots.

These look to have been taken at York (Scarborough platforms) pre remodelling circa 1980
Was there an exhibition at the station then ?

Yes.To celebrate 100 years of York station.
I visited on 12th June 1977.I'm not sure how long it was on for.
10p entry!
Exhibits included Mallard,Hardwicke,a Deltic,a Class 56 and various items of rolling stock.
I have a virtually identical slide I took of 1621.You can see the Class 56 in the background.
