ADR brake van photo on ebay

Postby andrewnummelin » Tue Jan 24, 2017 7:55 am

My attention has been drawn to a photo I've not seen before.
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Newport-Docks-Railway-brakevan-No-4-old-photo-20-x-15-cms-/272532351567?#ht_500wt_1288
VERY risky to say anything about colour from old black and white photos, but my impression is that the van was probably mid-grey, possibly with the veranda end painted red. I think the body tone is too light to have been red (oxide/brown).

Hello Andrew,
Perhaps the Circle could bid on it. it would be a useful addition to the library at Rhiwderin.
Regards,

Since there are only 2 or 3 people I known who might bid on this can we agree that only one of use bid? £6 is the starting bid which is steep at the best of times. If I win it I'll give high resolution scans to any who want and put medium resolution scan on my website. But I'm only going to bid the starting price.

I seem to a recall a drawing of this (or a very similar) brake van being published in the Archive but I can't locate it in the index - does anyone have a better memory than me?

I’ve already provided Rod with a copy: it should also be in the Circle (& HMRS) collections. My drawing was based on a photocopy from the WIMM.
