Not entirely sure - I know I was still at school so it must have been about 1975/76 ish - I remember we used the school minibus and did an East Midlands tour. Sadly many of the transparencies I have from then are beyond recovery. Thats what I get for neglecting them for 30 years. :grr:

Hi Chris,

well worth seeing them!

'76 was when I first started spotting away from Blackpool or Manchester but by public transport or organised trips (only being 14 years of age).

You've brought back some wonderful memories.

Can I ask which scanner you've used?

Regards

Reggie

Scanner is an Epson F-3200. I don't think they make them anymore.
