In the Spring of 1937 the new catalogue showed on the front page a locomotive coming out of a tunnel. Turning the split page shows a train going the other way into the tunnel, illustrating the principle of “Twin Trains”

The train at the bottom of the photo shows a mixed liveried train, with a LMS loco and guards van whilst the other stock is LNER

 

The new English style buildings are shown only briefly, not all of the ones listed are shown, perhaps they were not yet made at the time the catalogue was printed,  but prices are listed. For example the Terminal station cost 15/- that is about 75 pence in todays money or 1 Euro !
