PHIL & OWEN WILLIAMS

ISBN 978-1-911262-27-5 - OUT NOW

The late Tom Williams, photographer and Great Western enthusiast, born in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1930, is best known for his extensive black-and-white photographic work, donated to the National Railway Museum in York by his family after his untimely death at the age of forty nine in 1980. His little-known 35mm colour transparency work, however, was retained by his youngest son, Owen and has been under restoration since May 2014 by his eldest son, Phillip. Seen in print for the first time in the books ‘T.E.Williams: The Lost Colour Collection Volumes 1 & 2’  published during 2017, this third volume revisits Tom’s unique colour archive. Although centring on the Western Region of British Railways, around the idyllic Warwickshire and Cotswold countryside, we are also treated to locations as diverse as Bristol, Reading, New Barnet, Twyford, Eastleigh and Crew, to name but a few. We also have a chapter dedicated to the challenging section of main line between Newton Abbot and Plymouth. We believe that this volume will sit proudly, not just on any discerning steam enthusiast’s bookshelf, but with its large and detailed colour plates will also provide invaluable information for any serious railway modeller.

The Kings were the final development of the Churchward four-cylinder 4-6-0, stretched to the very limits of the loading gauge. Many people have asked why this, the premier Great Western Railway express passenger class, had not been covered in the ‘Book of’ series when books had been devoted to the humble pannier tanks and the ‘lesser’ 4-6-0 classes. The answer lies partly in the mists of time - in the previous millennium when Irwell Press published Peto’s Register on the Kings in 1995. Although it has stood the test of time quite well, it was thought the material should be dusted down, refurbished and re-invigorated with a generous helping of new pictures to take its rightful place at the head of the GWR ‘Books of’. The Chairman of the Great Western wanted the most powerful express engines in the country, and the successors to the Castle were designed to achieve this. His publicity department, never shy of trumpeting the company to the outside world, took full advantage of its new engines and pressed its claim, both at home and to the world via a trip to the USA. They even produced a book titled The ‘King’ of Railway Locomotives and details taken from several of its chapters have been included as a fascinating contemporary account of the of the building of the engines. As befits their status, the Kings attracted much attention from the enthusiast community from first to last, and many column inches have been devoted to their workings in both contemporary and historical journals and magazines. In particular, the details of pre- and post-war diagrams compiled for the Great Western Railway Journal have been included in the chapter on operations.

By Phillip and Owen Williams

The late Tom Williams, Great Western enthusiast and photographer born in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1930, is best known for his extensive black-and-white photographic work which was donated to the National Railway Museum in York by his family after his untimely death at the age of forty nine in 1980. His little-known 35mm colour transparency work, however, was retained by his youngest son, Owen and is currently under restoration by his eldest son, Phillip. Seen in print for the first time in the book T.E.Williams: The Lost Colour Collection Volume 1 published in March 2017, this second volume dips again into Tom’s unique slide archive to concentrate on the decade 1954 to 1964. It unashamedly centres around the Western Region of British Railways, as this was the photographer’s primary interest, with sections devoted exclusively to the King Class and Swindon Works, but we are also given a taste of the fruits of Tom’s eclectic travels up and down the country, across the regional boundaries. We believe that this volume will sit seamlessly next to the first on any steam enthusiast’s bookshelf and will provide a unique insight into the world of a passionate and talented photographer, who wasn’t afraid to experiment with colour film at a time when most of his peers believed that black-and-white was the only route to successful railway photography.

T.E. WILLIAMS: The Lost Colour Collection Vol. 1

T.E. WILLIAMS: The Lost Colour Collection Vol. 1

Price: 24.95

Quantity:

By Phillip and Owen Williams

The late Tom Williams is best known for his extensive black-and-white photographic work which was donated to the National Railway Museum by his family after his untimely death at the age of forty nine in 1980. This collection comprising almost 12,000 medium format and 35mm negatives has seen publication in countless books and magazines across the world over the intervening decades. His little-known 35mm colour transparency work, however, was retained by his family, remaining largely unseen and unpublished until now. Digitally restored and seen here in print for the first time, this book presents a cross section of these colour images taken between 1954 and 1966. Although most of these photographs show main line steam in action on the Western Region of British Railways, we are also treated to glimpses of rarer and lesser photographed locations, such as the ex-Stratford-upon-Avon and Midland Junction Railway, which was swallowed up by the LMS in the 1920s, eventually falling foul to the Beeching cuts of the 1960s. Tom’s colour slide collection contains arguably some of the finest and most important previously unseen colour images of steam in action to see the light of day for several decades.

By PHILIP E. RUNDLE M.B.E., M.Inst. T.A.

Following the interest shown in his first book, Laira Fireman, it was put to Phil that a second might be of interest, broadening the scope across Cornwall, a county so dear to his heart. In Tales from the Clay Country, he has attempted to portray the work of the Great Western in Cornwall and in particular the steam sheds at St Blazey, Truro and Penzance. After a while it seemed natural to include the Southern men and their engines at Wadebridge, on the North Cornwall line, to make this an account of Cornish Sheds.
