* SALES OFFER 'Diesel & Electric Blue' Book & choice of DVD for £19.50 delivered (saving over 45%) **

Back in 2007, VISIONS INTERNATIONAL produced a 96 Page A4 softback book titled 'DIESEL & ELECTRIC BLUE', (see above).

It featured 250 images (mainly mono) taken by David Maxey and the contents of the book are stated in the second picture above. The images show a wide range of Diesel Locomotives active in the late 1970s and 1980s, with 15 of Class 40s and similar amounts each of class 37, 50, 52 and 55. The remaining shots are an assortment of classes 06, 08, 20, 25, 26, 27, 31, 33, 43, 44 to 46, 47, 56, 71, 76 and AC Electrics. 

In the past year when on the sales stand, we were regularly asked if we had this book but we didn’t, so we decided to do something about it. As a consequence, the CFPS now has 20+ copies of this book which has an RRP of £14.95. HOWEVER, you can purchase the book from CFPS at a price of £7.20.   Post + Packing will be an additional £2.80, making a total of just £10.00. 

IN ADDITION, If you purchase the book, you can also get one of the following DVDs (with RRP of £19.95) for just a further £9.50. The 2 items will be sent together for the same postage cost meaning that you can get 1 x DVD + The D & E Book for a TOTAL PRICE of £19.50. You can also add a Calendar to this offer for a total of £32.00 delivered.

Just to stress, you CAN purchase just the book.  You don’t have to purchase the DVD but you can only get the DVD for £9.50, if you DO purchase the book.

Fifty Years of the Class 40s - Volume 1,2 & 3

Three excellent publications made by Andy Sparks are available covering class 40s during the 1950s to the 1970s. 

Volume 1 - Fifty Years of the Class 40s - 1950s & 1960s - £7.95 + £1.95 p & p

This top quality CFPS publication was the first in a series of books covering the decades since the introduction of the class 40s in 1958.The first volume covers the late 1950s & the 1960s & is packed with interesting articles.

It is a "must purchase" for 'class 40' aficionados and rail enthusiasts in general, particularly those who have an interest in the 'transition years' period. Within its 56 pages, you will find almost seventy stunning photographs that take you back in time to the beginning of the class 40 era. Many of the photographs have rarely (if ever) been published before.

They include the superb camera work of Geoff Bannister, Jim Carter, David Hey, David Percival, Geoff Plumb, Peter Robinson, Alan Taylor and Bill Watson to name but a few. All these excellent photographers have kindly allowed a small selection of their photographs to be used in this new fund raising initiative. The books have been produced with a 300gsm gloss art, hard backed cover. All the stunning photographs are in Black and White.
