This is a selection of my Christmas greeting from 2012-2016 (2013 excepted, which was to a different design)). All are genuine images with an added overlay of falling snow and seasonal greetings (updated 25-Dec-16).

This image was inspired by a fictional image on the rear of a Burwell & District book published by Jim Neale, who commissioned the accompanying B&D AEC Q image. In reality, 9 DER was a Willowbrook-bodied Daimler Fleetline operated by the original company, which sold out to Eastern Counties in June 1979. Initially preserved, it was later broken up for spares due to chassis and body frame rot. Thanks to Keith McGillivray for the base image (30-Jan-16).

It is good to see new locomotives being delivered for passenger work in an era where norm is for fixed-formation unit trains. NS has, of course, had its fingers burned recently with the troublesome Italian-built V250 high speed trains. In reality, the new NS deliveries are Bombardier Traxx MS locomotives, whereas this fictional image depicts the rival Vectron design from Siemens. If anyone could suggest a more appropriate running number, I would be happy to make the change (now done, see comments). Thanks again to Marten Otto for the base image (15-Oct-14).

I have no first-hand experience of First (no pun intended), which simply doesn't operate on my patch. This fictional new-style Enviro 400 carries First Essex branding simply because I was able to copy it from an image that I'd been given. The Scottish registration is in line with increasingly common practice of new vehicles being registered by the builder rather than the operator. Thanks to Keith McGillivray for the use of his source image (15-Jun-14).

OK, so it's not Manchester as we know it, but let's focus on the tram. Improving public transport links between Manchester's principal railway stations had always been high on the agenda of Greater Manchester Transport. Had the funding been available, it may have re-introduced trams several decades before the Manchester Metrolink scheme.

A prime candidate would have been the La Brugeoise (later Bombardier) GTL8 design, a development of the PCC cars supplied to cities across Belgium and the Netherlands. The GTL8 had been intended as a Dutch standard tram but, in the event, was built to the specific requirements of HTM in Den Haag (where the source picture was taken). Coincidentally the HTM livery is not dissimilar to the GMT scheme portrayed here (04-Jan-13).
