I can’t help wondering whether there was a shortage of train timetables at various stages during the last century. Several postcards in my collection bear messages asking the recipient to send the author either a timetable or pages from it. This postcard sent on 15 October 1938 by Mummie in Weymouth, Dorset to Messrs I and D Scott, The Register Hotel, Edinburgh, is no different. Mummie writes:
Many thanks for the letter etc Ian. Hope you are both well. What about the timetable I asked you to send me. You can just send the pages with the London trains but you will have to post them Thursday night. Love to you and Don.
