Now, a strange request….  The Cumbrian Railways Association have dropped me a note asking if we have a picture / photo of a Hallade Machine from the 1930s that they can use to accompany an article they are doing in their next Journal, which is regarding a high speed run which was undertaken on the WCML.

I can only find  a 1949 version; do you know of anyone who has an image for use in the article?

There is (was?) an old Hallade Machine in the York Railway Museum - I dont' know exactly its age but it might be from the '30s. I will look for the photos I have to see if I can find the machine.

If I remember correctly is the one in the right here:

Hi Kerrie,

By pure chance, I've just come across a photograph in a 1923 PWI Journal of a Hallade machine of that date. I don't know whether the 1930 model was different, but Sara will have the document tomorrow afternoon. The photo is between pages 168 and 169 of the 1923 Journal.

'The Permanent Way' by Greenleaf & Tyers, published by Clarence Winchester circa 1947 has a photo of one.
