Franklyn Cards : Selling a better grade of card for 25 years.
Wills, Railway EnginesIf looking at steam trains is your thing then this is the set for you. Wills at its most workman-like. Trains in profile text bristling with detail. Good production values and well priced.

Wills, Railway Engines [1924] 50 cards
 
Yes, same title as the above series but a number of years seperate them. The back designs are also different so there is no real chance of mistaking the two sets unless you really try. You can rely on Wills, no frills, no fuss, it does exactly what it says on the card, Railway Engines.

Wills, Railway Engines [1936]
 
Gallaher, Trains of the WorldQuite possibly Gallaher's finest hour. You could spend a lot more money on a set of cards before you got the same sort of quality. But why bother, spend less and enjoy these cards. They are from around the world and it does encompass some new fangled technology as seen in 1937 so perhaps not one for the pure steam enthusiast but really for most that is hair splitting talk.

Gallaher, Trains of the World [1937]
 
If you want bargain basement in the world of cards with trains on them this is it. Its a good set with the usual Wills determined attention to detail, looking at the stuff that goes on which allows the trains to get from A to B. It might be like talking to the oily rag rather than the engine driver but even the oily rag has got something to say.

Wills, Railway Equipment [1938]
 
More to do with the scenery than the trains, indeed in some of the cards finding the train is something of a trick. Perhaps I am being a little cruel to a set trying to be different, it does appear on the page dedicated to the best sets ever, so it did something right.

Churchmans, Wonderful Railway Travel [1937]
 
Turn your head to view this one. Someone in the Churchmans building was a railway enthusiast and thank goodness for that. Now with the nostalgia boom for these things we have a lot to thank Churchmans for.

Churchmans, Landmarks in Railway Progress [1931]
 
Churchmans trying to outdo Wills in the detail stakes with this one. In fact they were very proud of this theme. Two series of cards this size were produced and three series of the larger size cards. It is a fine set of cards and if I was choosing I would pick this set over the Wills set but I'm only choosing not paying. The cards are 13 times more expensive than the Wills offering. Still the Wills set is very well priced and these cards are lovely.

Churchmans, Railway Working[1926] series one.
 
Not quite as determined to show the scenery as the Wonderful Railway Travel set above but this set is obviously quite keen to break free of the restrictions of showing a large image of a train in all the cards. Still it is nice to see experimentation in anything.

Churchmans, Empire Railways [1931]
 
I've been a little unfair to this set in the choice of card (it is the electric kitchen in the Flying Scotsman, unique at the time) but there are a number of interior shots of the famous trains of the day as well as the more traditional exterior shots and so in the spirit of fair play I gave you this card to look at. Somehow Churchman go the extra mile in attention to detail when it comes to the illustration. Perhaps that is just me though.

Churchmans, Famous Railway Trains [1929]
 
Railways were one of the biggest employers in a Britain where heavy industry was Britain. Not surprisingly I suppose some of the many thousands of people employed in the business have been honoured on a number of sets. This set has a nice colour balance and demonstrates why we don't have much of a heavy industry left as we were still making them like this until we weren't.
Ogdens, Construction of the Railway Trains [1930]
 
This is Ogdens attempt at a more conventional train set. There is a modernisitc element running through them of course and it is jolly to see just how far (or not) we have come in the last 60 odd years. Of course trains are pretty restricted, the Victorians built the bridges and that has rather defined our railways ever since. Imagine just how far a double decker train would get in the British Isles.

Ogdens Modern Railways [1936]
 
Strange I always think of this set as so much more modern than the other series on this page but it is still over 60 years old, it is probably the title British Railways. A photographic set and really a most effective presentation for once, gritty, like the real thing. Somehow steam trains were black and white, too many old movies I suspect.

Senior Service British Railways [1938]
 
Now this is the set to aspire to on this page. Turn of the century and in relation to some other sets on this page not badly priced, although still the most expensive. It is also something of a nightmare to collect. 50 cards but right on the cusp of the ITC being formed which means there are many a variation to a complete set. Something of a challenge if you just wanted to collect them by just buying piles of cards, probably not possible now. Sometimes I wish such days still existed, rather like the trains on this page themselves.
