Our small collection of railway-related items has been enhanced thanks to this generous donation of a 1897 North British Railway Timetable and two rail tickets. The tickets appear to date from the 1850s and 1860s and relate to commercial trade between Dundee and London.
We hope to find out more about these items later this year during Neale Elder’s talk on 12th September titled ‘The Dundee to Arbroath Railway: From Pioneering Line to Trunk Route’.
Do you have any local railway items that you would consider donating to the museum? If so, we would love to hear from you!
The museum is very pleased with its most recent acquisition: a Panda Police Car purchased on eBay!
The 1970’s Morris Minor is the last of its kind as far as we know, having faithfully served in Dundee’s Police Force.
Having secured the latest addition to the museums collection, after picking it up on a 19-hour round trip to Rugby, the intention now will be to finish what the sellers, Tom and Wendy, started: to return the car to its full glory and put it on display.
This latest addition is in very good shape and with a well-preserved chassis. The original interior has been retained with all the necessary parts. The previous owners have also kindly donated their collected memorabilia — including roof lights, a police radio and some original badges and buttons from a uniform.
The Museum hopes to unveil the car, fully restored, this summer.
