Needs to start with W and have two vowels in the word.
Wireless Crystal Radio complete with Cats Whisker……Hand made to a design from Popular Wireless magazine published in 1925. The Wireless itself probably dates from a couple of years later. The coil on the right is the inductance which is in a balanced circuit with the variable capacitor inside the box (attached to the dial). The Cats Whisker and the Galena Crystal are at the back. Connections for earth and aerial are on the left.
Western Class Diesel Locomotive……D1065 ‘Western Consort’ approaches Reading Station in September 1975. The Western’s were Diesel Hydraulic locomotives and were being withdrawn from service at the time this photograph was taken as British Railways rationalised the fleet on Diesel Electric types. The Westerns were replaced by the Class 50 locomotives like the one I published in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge ‘V’ post. Western Consort was withdrawn from service 2 years after this photo and subsequently scrapped. 7 of the class have been preserved.
