Ken Nunn Collection
Over a year ago, I gave notice that I wished to give up the Ken Nunn operation, and since then two notices have appeared in the Bulletin, appealing for a volunteer to take over this work.
Unfortunately no suitable offer has been received, even though several adequately qualified members were approached by the Management Committee. The entire collection (negatives and prints) has therefore now been taken over by the National Railway Museum (NRM) at York.
Very detailed listing information, indexed in every possible way (ie by company, class, negative number, etc) has also been supplied to the NRM in computerised form and assimilated into their system. However, with the agreement of the NRM, the Club retains a digital image of some 2700 of the 12000 subjects, thus enabling publication of two photos in every Bulletin to continue indefinitely.
Additionally, three talks based on the collection, London Steam before 1930, British Main Line Steam 1900-1960, and Further Afield with the Ken Nunn Collection – some of which were originally only available as slides – are now available as scanned images, and have been shown both to various branches and to other societies.
If any problems remain, I am still able to answer questions about the collection at my current address; 11 Braywood Avenue, Egham, Surrey TW20 9LY (Graham Stacey).
