    I love old industrial advertising material, it's a very effective way of gaining an insight into the past. Recently some railway related material has made its way into my collection and I thought it too good to keep to myself so here are a few adverts from 1952. Enjoy.

    Consumer advertising is fun too, this from 1961 - it'll never catch on:

    Steve Cook and Osgood like this.

    On a serious note I had an export model Lightning, unfortunately I don't have a photo but it was exactly like this shot pinched from the internet. [​IMG]
