A little edge chipping on two examples and one is a little dusty, good otherwise. It was never owned by the LNER. However, following nationalisation it was transferred to the Eastern Region of British Railways. Initially, tickets were ordered from the former LNER printing works, many, like this example, being produced with the old company title. Some of the tickets are to the same destinations, but are in different print styles.

Picture used with permission, do not reproduce. Badge The three wavy vertical lines represent the three principal rivers of the County, the Cam, the Nene and the Ouse, while the two straight lines represent the many man-made drains of the Fens. The arms of the earlier authorities did not include such vertical lines, but a diagonal wavy line appeared in the arms of the old Cambridgeshire CC and in the arms of Cambridgeshire and Isle of Ely CC , horizontal wavy lines were in the arms of the Isle of Ely CC and the arms of Huntingdonshire CC, and multiple horizontal straight lines were in the arms of the Soke of Peterborough CC.

In every case either the bend or bar or its background were blue, indicating the rivers of the fenland, though in the case of the Soke of Peterborough the bars were derived from the arms of the Cecil family. The border of the shield with fleurs-de-lys extending into it from the gold of the shield is reminiscent of the “double tressure flory counter flory”, which appeared in the former Cambridgeshire and Cambridgeshire and Isle of Ely arms, and which came from the Royal arms of Scotland.

This recalls the fact that in the twelfth and early thirteenth centuries the earldom of Huntingdon and Cambridge was held by successive kings of Scotland. The mural crown appeared in both the Cambridgeshire and Isle of Ely arms and in the Huntingdon and Peterborough arms, and before that in the arms of the Soke of Peterborough. It represents the castles which formerly guarded the principal towns of the county, and is a customary emblem over the shield of a local authority.

And they are right. The sessions are focused, but jovial, with much joking and everything taken in good humour. You may believe that the ringing is the most important element and ultimately you are right, but a social atmosphere helps towards generating good ringing. Go to Birmingham or the College Youths practice and nearly everyone goes to the pub afterwards and many continue their ringing with trips away and other social occasions that are great fun.

Likewise at Pettistree and other places too. If you create a light-hearted social environment it attracts more ringers and more often than not good ringing, which in turn usually attracts more ringers and so on. On this occasion at SMLT, the social element was well fulfilled with an invitation to attend the annual pre-Christmas curry and a drink in The Cricketers where the barman accidentally knocked a pint of beer over Chris Birkby to much amusement, including the soakee.

I’m blown away by the level of support from fellow rail enthusiasts in building this site. Their willingness to participate in its construction with no prospect of financial gain, just the satisfaction of being involved, is bloody marvellous. Starting in May , Derek’s input has been a massive undertaking and there have been times when the pair of us – just two bungling old geezers with a mutual love for trains and railways – were on our arthritic knees by the sheer size of it all.

And now here we are with three finished pages…or are they? The interest shown by modellers has spurred Derek to suggest a series of articles on the ‘Britannias’ that will be of particular interest to model makers Since taking early retirement, Derek’s knowledge of all things power-driven led him to making a start on correcting the many anomalies he found in books and magazines regarding the BR Class 7MT Britannias.

Derek’s research has taken him more than 6 years and his findings now run into three page on this site. This is in complete contrast to his original reservations. He commented – ‘Whilst the first group of Britannias Nos are indeed very interesting, and in some cases diverse, the history of the final batch of engines Nos is somewhat mundane by comparison, and so whilst I feel confident of filling a page with information on the first batch it would be tricky to give the same result for the remaining engines.

This is because the list of modifications diminished as they were put into the building programme and only half of these changes were required on later batches. Nevertheless there are many more photos of these later builds, primarily because enthusiasts began to realise that extinction was on the horizon, so perhaps the additional photos will remedy the imbalance I’m sure his meticulous research will become a valuable source of reference on the Internet
