We couldn't do this without your help...

Many others for their support, enthusiasm and encouragement.
Stephen Duffell for his generous donation of all his research material relating to Edward Bury.
Russell Burridge for 3D printing the water crane and point capstan so beautifully.
And Michele for putting up with my frankly petty and irritating obsessions!
Thanks from Tom....
In chronological order thanks go to the LNWR society, namely Richard Ball for our constantly revealing corrspondence on early carriages, Bob Williams, without whose editorial guidance my contributions to the Journal would not be so rigorous, and Mike Williams, Harry Jack, Mike Musson, Peter Chatham. Special mention also to David and Jeremy Viewing whose initial generosity set me on the path and whose own creations have been an inspiration.
While many of the drawings we have worked from have been widely known in the railway media, especially in digital archives such as Hathitrust, e-rara, BnF Gallica etc, however if it wasn't for the supporting documentation at The National Archive, much would not be understood to the extent that it is now. Thanks must go to the staff and the assistance that they have given.
KIllian Keane for his enthusiasm and skill in bringing amazing things to life through 3D printing.
To my wife and children who have unwaveringly suffered the lectures and my distractions
