2014 calendar - appeal for images

The Fifty Fund and Renown Repulse Restoration Group are producing a 2014 calendar to help raise funds for our respective ongoing projects. This will be published in the next few months. To complete the set of images we are looking for a good shot of 50050 in preservation and a number of pictures of certain Class 50 locomotives in BR service.

BR service shots required of:

50017, 50030, 50031, 50049, 50050.

Can you help? If we use your photo you will receive a free copy of the calendar and your will be credited. You will retain copyright of course, so they must be your photos.

Ideally the images will be well lit and at least 2000x1500 pixels, preferably more.

Tim Snowball (RRRG Chairman) and Joe Burr (Fifty Fund Chairman) will be judging the images submitted and look forward to seeing what you can provide. Please send your images to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 14.00hrs UTC (15:00 BST) 21st May 2013.  Thank you in anticipation of your help.

The finished calendar will shortly be available to purchase from both organisations’ online stores.

Microsoft Train Simulator packs

A reminder that the four addons for Microsoft Train Simulator produced by Renown Repulse Universal are still available.  Our new website will feature an online shop but for the time being these addons are available from our eBay shop.

All with free P&P!

Don't forget as well that we can offer the acclaimed DVD Class 50: The Laira Years for only £18.45 (+ £1.25 P&P); one of the cheapest prices you'll find!

In all of these cases your money is going to fund a very worthwhile preservation project and we thank you in advance for your support.
