A Blast from The Past....

Our paddler is 61 years old this year - the picture above shows her at Dunoon during her first year in service for the London & North Eastern Railway (LNER).

During the winter of 1947-48 Britain's railways were nationalised and as a result Waverley took on the buff funnel colours of her new owners - The British Transport Commission.

The image is taken from a medium format negative taken by Hugh Climie.
