Calendar and Greetings Cards

The cover of the 2022 CalendarFollowing the demand for the Friends 2021 calendar, which completely sold out, we are pleased to say that the the 2022 calendar with the theme Memorable Moments and Record Breaking Achievements over the years using not only the Tyseley Collection locomotives but also some inspiring guest engines is now available.

As for the 2021 calendar, the 2022 calendar is A4 month-to-a-page, spiral bound on the short edge. Each page of the calendar has a Vintage Trains related image with a description of the featured locomotive and/or the event being celebrated alongside an interesting historical snippet looking back at some event in that month. The cover of the calendar features GWR 5043 Earl of Mount Edgcumbe crossing the Forth Bridge (Photo courtesy of Bob Avery). You can also see a gallery of the images for each month, showing the cover and the snippits of information as well as the image.

They cost £6 + postage and can be ordered using the 2022 Calendar order form. They are also available to purchase if you are travelling on a Vintage Trains tour.

Each pack has 5 mixed cards; the inside reads Best wishes and so can be used throughout the year, not just Christmas. The card images can be seen in this gallery.

All proceeds from the sale of these cards and calendars go towards the funds that are used to support specific Vintage Trains’ projects.
