Great pictures !
I see a Tilley on the other table that was already ealy on my wanted list....
Just but the design of it.
You must mean Stu's Tilley IL37. This one.
They are rare things. I traded this one to Stu a while back but it was missing the reflector and the support frame. Stu did a nice job of reproducing the reflector and also made a stand for it. It was not lit at Ipswich but it is in working order.
This is the only shot I did of Stu's display.
@Neil, you are dead on.
I like that strange model. I am all in for trading ;-)
Yeah well you will have to shake a lot of trees before another one falls out. I don't know how many there are out there but at a guess maybe less than 10. They were used by some rail companies in smaller signal boxes so a few will have survived. ::Neil::
Less then 10
That Tilley model is scarce, but I have seen at least two examples listed on UK., Ebay over the years.
I moved on my IL37 last year - I don't know if it was counted in the estimated 10 survivors. It came from a railway station somewhere just north of Edinburgh. It took me about 15 years to find one...
Still on my wanted listed.
Knowing your luck it won’t be too long.....
My luck? don’t know what you’re talking about.
Great photos! Sadly we could not make it this year as it was the day of our return from the west country to Essex, and after the 300+ miles hack to get home that same day, I could not face another 120 miles round trip. I consider myself reprimanded and will try harder next year.
I should be displaying (and cooking) again next year so hopefully see you there.
