Wondering what to spend my money on is always a big problem for me, I never seem to be able to get through the darn stuff quickly enough. And if you are the same I have a couple of excellent bits of news for you today!
The first of these is that over the last couple of days we have had some very generous donations of books and magazines made for the shop, and today I have been very busy checking and pricing this new stock. Most of it will be on the shelves for the Model Railway Show on Saturday, so come and take a look. But some of the items offered were so valuable that we have decided to try putting them on Amazon rather than in the bookshop where average prices are a 'fiver' or often less and around £20 seems to be the most we can ask.
As we don't currently have a Stainmore Railway Bookshop Amazon Merchant Account you will find these items listed on my own account here. All the railway related items are posted there on behalf of our bookshop and all income earned on them will go to SRC funds. On the other hand if you want to buy an interesting book on East Asian urbanisation it's all mine!
The other thing to remind you of today is that places are going fast now for the 'Stainmore 150' Photo Charter on Tuesday 30th August. This event is intended for serious railway photographers and the day will be spent organising locomotives and stock on site for photo-shoots. There are only a limited number of places available and the cost is £30 - if you are interested in attending please e-mail David Tillotson on firstname.lastname@example.org
