Item specifics

Type: Photographs Company/ Era/ Region: Europe

Original Negative (sold with Copyright) - CFR Roumania

Rumanian State Railways [Caile Ferrate Romane] historical treasure - CFR No. 43 "Calugareni" - preserved outside Bucuresti Nord Station - July 1961. The inside-cylinder 2-4-0 had been built by the Canada Works (Birkenhead) in 1869 for the newly completed Bucuresti-Giurgiu Railway (as No. 8). This British financed and engineered undertaking, linking the capital with the Danube River, was absorbed into the CFR in 1882.   [U/3649]

2¼" x 3" (6x8) negative - surplus to our A.E. "Dusty" Durrant Collection.
Watermarks (not on original) have been applied to protect the purchaser.

In 1949, whilst still a Premium Apprentice at Swindon Locomotive Works, Dusty Durrant began what he would later describe as his "World Bash" - 50 years of railway related occupation and travel through more than 50 countries. The images he captured in Eastern Europe in those early days are irreplaceable - many were taken amidst heightened security, with officialdom constantly affecting freedom of movement and denying photographic opportunities - whilst others would be impossible to recreate with the passage of time. He wrote about his early experiences in the autobiographical work "Swindon Apprentice" and his images have appeared in many other publications. We are delighted to be able to offer a selection from this remarkable collection. Starting with France and Germany, you will see material from the railway systems of Austria, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Greece, Hungary, Portugal, Roumania, Spain, Turkey and Yugoslavia - and also from his "year with East African Railways". Don't miss the opportunity to obtain these gems; warts and all, each is a unique example of the work of a world-renowned railway photographer - and a genuine collectors' item!

Please note that additional original images are occasionally to be found through our eBay Shop at a fixed price - obviously on a "First Come - First Served" basis. Unsold auction items will also be included - at a reduced price - and we have discovered some "lucky dip" material that will be worth delving into to rescue overlooked treasures! Visit our eBay Shop soon and return there regularly to find more quality material. No additional postage charge for any quantity ordered at the same time. All purchases are despatched by First Class (or Airmail) post, protected in negative sleeves within a board-backed manilla envelope.


The subject matter will cover the whole of the UK and Ireland; both mainline and narrow-gauge; industrial systems; steam locomotives from all BR regions with ex LMS, LNER, GWR & SR designs - plus CIE and NCC examples - at Works and at work in all seasons and in all conditions; station views with signage and lamps; junctions with signalling arrays; sub-sheds and major Motive Power Depots; bridges, viaducts and tunnels, etc. Close-ups of railway paraphernalia, mechanical details; nameplates and worksplates. PLUS a substantial selection of OVERSEAS INTEREST.


From a large collection of fine transport material accumulated over many years that now needs to be reduced, due to space limitations. Other material will continue to be added to the Prorail UK shop on a regular basis, specially selected to enhance your collection.

Since there will be a steady flow of material on offer, it is suggested that you consider consolidating successful purchases to save on postage and packing charges. Successful purchases can be put aside for weekly/monthly billing and shipment. Regular customers can also benefit from repeat order discount.

Look out for other selections of books, magazines, photographic images (negatives & transparencies) and prints, postcards, tickets, timetables - and general railwayana, from this extensive source.

Further details can be obtained from the PRORAIL website

Each item will be carefully packed to ensure that it reaches you in the best possible condition. Please ignore automatic eBay acknowlegments and rather wait for our own invoice before making your payment, since additional purchases could qualify for free postage within the range of Royal Mail's price bands. Regular customers may opt to select 14 day or monthly billing, so that their purchases can be consolidated.

Within the UK, payments may be made by personal cheque or postal order - or by PayPal. Overseas bidders always welcome, where small items will be sent at an appropriate Airmail rate.


Postage & Packing is not just the price of a stamp. Postcards, tickets and negatives need care in wrapping and despatch, so it is not sensible to "economize" in that area. Such items are sent in a board-backed manila envelope, carefully inserted and properly sealed. And books are lovingly treated! Whether selling for 50p or £50, items are afforded the same care and attention. When all aspects of the service being offered are considered, we believe that the "p&p" costs quoted are fully justified. But discounts ARE still available for multiple purchases to be despatched at the same time. For example, three cards would be covered by the basic rate - with sliding scale thereafter based on the actual additional costs of postage and materials used. Purchases may be consolidated over several days (or even weeks) by mutual agreement, to take advantage of such savings.
