British Railways Promotional Pamphlet - The Feltham Yard - 1950s

I'm not entirely sure why this leaflet was produced, however I have seen a number of them through the years giving information on a range of British Railways facilities. This one is on the Feltham Marshalling Yard which was finished by the London and South Western Railway in 1921. While there is no date on it, from the propensity of small wagons and the steam locomotive pictured on the rear cover, I can only assume that it was issued in the 1950s. This little leaflet gives a range of details regarding the yard, such as its size, it operation and the number of train departures and arrivals. For more information on the Feltham Marshalling Yard, please have a look at my latest Blog post on the main 'Turnip Rail' website HERE.
