GERMANY/BRITAIN: Würzburg, Nürnberg, Gatwick,  21 April : The last day in Germany today, and the return home; travelling from Würzburg Hbf to München Hbf via Nürnberg. Unfortunately, soon after leaving Würzburg it becomes apparent that we're going to spend a long time reaching Nürnberg, where we've only got about 12 minutes to change trains. We get there over an hour late, missing our NEXT connection, so spend around 55 minutes there. The delay means we're pushed for time at München Hbf, and have to head straight to the airport, so there's no chance to take any photos there. Easyjet flight to Gatwick, where it seems to involve a 5-day trek to get through everything. We're knackered by now, and opt for a train one hour ahead of the plan. On my return home, I spend the best part of two days trying to stay in a comfortable reclined position, wearing comfy clothes!

Section 037: Ian Allan Trains/Trains Illustrated Diaries : The Trains Diaries first appeared in 1950, being available through (possibly) Trains magazine or The Ian Allan Locospotters Club. These contained a wealth of railway facts, figures & trivia: mileages, signalling, loco classes, photos, named trains, headcodes, etc, as well as the usual diary stuff and a map of the London Underground. From 1959 until 1963, they were entitled Trains Illustrated Diary, until that magazine became Modern Railways in 1964. The diaries sort of faded away after 1968 and the end of steam. All images & info courtesy of The John Debens Collection of Ian Allan Memorabilia.

Section 034: ABC Transport Of The Forties series reprints : Although all of these books appear elsewhere here, I thought it would be a good idea to put the whole of the Transport of the Forties series, complete with variations, and with and without dust jackets, all together as a set. It's odd that the LMS and LNER editions never carried the series title. These books (apart from the Combined Volume) were a slightly larger format than the original editions.

Section 026: Titans/Veterans Of The Track series 1944-47 : 'Titans of the Track' was the first of a series of photo albums, these being produced between 1944 and 1947; although not strictly ABCs, they carried the 'Ian Allan Locomotive Series' logo. The same size as regular ABCs, but sideways, if you see what I mean. Eight books were turned out, and all eight were issued as a bound combined edition with a black hardback cover. 'Veterans of the Tracks' was a one-off in 1946, and has been included in this collection because of the similarity of title.

Section 027: My Best Railway Photographs series 1946-49 : Another set of photograph albums, these each being the work of a particular photographer, and eventually running to fifteen editions. Some photographers featured in more than one of the series, being published between 1946 and 1949. Other photograph albums will be found in Section 025.

Section 024: ABC Narrow Gauge Railways 1. The Romney Hythe & Dymchurch Railway : An odd output of books & booklets throughout the years, this collection is possibly incomplete; I'll add any more if & when they come to light. Some of the publications are, to all intents & purposes, not much more than timetables, while others contain more information. As usual, a couple of these books aren't quite ABCs, but are interesting, and similar in spirit enough to include.

Section 023: ABC Locomotive Engineers : This one-off series, ostensibly Locomotive Engineers of the Big Four, was produced in September 1946, but although prepared in 1949, the LMS edition was never published, so only three editions were actually published - GWR, SR and LNER.

Section 019: ABC Pre-Grouping Southern Locomotives : A small collection of large format softback books produced between 1946 and 1949, covering the three pre-grouping constituent companies which formed the Southern Railway - The London, Brighton & South Coast Railway (LBSCR), The South Eastern & Chatham Railway (SECR), and The London & South Western Railway (LSWR). Perhaps extending the series to cover the whole of the country's pre-grouping locomotive stock was a little too ambitious...
