And here are just three of the images on offer…..

CRSC has put together a superb colour photo offer, made up entirely from the collection given to us by professional photographer (and Club member) John Goss.

John took these photos — including stunning shots of PS Caledonia, TS Queen Mary II and MacBrayne’s MV Clansman — during working visits to the west of Scotland in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Three (Pioneer at speed, Coruisk with Waverley, and Hebridean Princess passing beneath the Skye Bridge), were taken in the early 2000s.

The 12 photos, supplied as 7” x 5” prints in full sets only, cost £16 per set (including post/packing), but the price is discounted to £12 for CRSC members.

Limited availability so please order quickly. Remember — CRSC members get a discount!

Born in Gloucester, John Goss spent most of his working life as a professional photographer for British Rail, latterly as a freelance, with subjects ranging from pre-1964 steam engines to early 21st century industrial photography.

Fortunately for us, he has always been interested in steamers. “If I was sent anywhere interesting, I’d stay an extra night and wander round taking photographs,” says John. “I tried to take in as many steamers as possible.”

John retains the copyright on his collection for his lifetime while allowing CRSC to publish them in perpetuity.
