I greatly enjoyed my visit to the Centre last October, on the occasion of 30585 returning to steam. It was also
particularly good to have a glimpse of the LWSR Luggage Van 5025, and I thought you might like to have copies of my
photographs taken on 21st May 1966. These were taken during the course of a car outing - at that time I was working in Bracknell, Berkshire. It was
always a pleasure to look out for this van on my many trips down the Exeter line (invariably, in pre-1967 days behind steam). So I was very pleased,
many years ago now, to learn of the restoration of this van - and what a good job was made of it! It was a real pleasure to see it again last October.
Thank you. I enclose a donation - please put it towards a project at Quainton. With all good wishes for this year.
