Don't worry the next three from the printers are modern traction, well electrics actually. However, I am working on another fourteen diesel titles just now.

Are you trying to bankrupt me?  Unless they will be out for Christmas in which case it'll be the family's finances you are raiding.

Seriously though Kevin your books are an absolute goldmine and I look forward to the new titles, as you say inspirational for those of us with an interest in post 1968 modelling.

Nothing yet as although we have some good material we need more, the usual story from those already contacted to sort out their material is when they find a moment and they are retired too!. So sorry the short answer is no, but I do have plans for a couple of chapters in the next two releases of both Sixties and Seventies Diesel & Electric Days Remembered next year if that is any consolation.

 

Publisher's note - If you can help with material from South Wales from the 1960s to 1980s then get in touch, please.

Just a quick note to say Sixties Diesel & Electric Days Remembered VI is another cracking collection and was quickly delivered by post direct from Kevin, if you are having difficulty finding them in local bookshops.

More modelling inspiration for us "baby boomers"!

I picked up a copy of Sixties Diesel & Electric Days Remembered VI at Warley, and I must say its every bit as good as the previous five. However, I was glancing over at the other day and the spine read Diesel & Electric Days Remembered IV. I thought "sh!t! I've just bought another copy of a book I already have" until I looked at the front cover again and realised the error on the spine.

I'm not the only one then!

No they all are the same as the last minute corrections were not implemented at the presses when we spotted it, these are the problems when printing overseas. The up side is we can keep the costs of production under control and the prices by printing overseas. That is as long as Sterling does not take a nose dive after Brexit or the election. meanwhile I can only offer my humble apologies, stand in the corner and wait for VI of the best....

I'm sure it won't interfere with my enjoyment of the contents when I get hold of it on 25th :)

Hopefully another one or two of the 70s spotting days titles ?

No more Seventies Spotting Days titles in the pipeline, but there are two more Seventies Diesel & Electric Days Remembered lined up for this year if that helps.
