It’s almost here! Great Central Railway 1940s Weekend 2013

One of my favourite events of the year is happening this weekend – 7th, 8th and 9th June 2013.  The 1940s event at the Great Central Railway in 2007 was one of the very first re-enactment events that I ever went to and this event is still one of the highlights of my photography calendar.

I shall hopefully be posting photos from this year’s event in due course but before I do that I just wanted to show you the 2013 Great Central Railway Timetable and also the Wartime Weekend Flyer, both of which feature one of my photos on the front cover, the young soldier and the land army girl looking out of the railway carriage window.

Great Central Railway Timetable and Wartime Weekend Flyer 2013

I’m really pleased to see this photo taking pride of place on the front of these two brochures, I just hope I can take some photos of a similar quality over the coming weekend.  This shot was the best of a series of similar shots that I took just as the train was arriving at Rothley Station.

Here’s the original in case you missed it before:

***Update***Photos from the 2013 1940s event have been posted here

My photos from the GCR 1940s event in 2012 can still be seen here, and from the 2011 event here.

Photos from the first event I covered, back in 2007, can still be found here

Have a great weekend!
