As the holiday season approaches, the Railway Benefit Fund has announced the opening of its Christmas Shop which offers a number of railway-themed products, including two new Christmas card designs, alongside its 2023 calendar.
The 2023 calendar has again been sponsored by TES 2000 and sees an incredible collection of images following this year’s theme “Rail Moments in History”.
The calendar includes Flying Scotsman, the Journey Shrinker and Mallard and is in A4 landscape format and costs just £8.
The first of two new Christmas cards features an original photograph taken on the Railway Benefit Fund’s “Royal Charter”. which was a fundraising event to celebrate the platinum jubilee.
The card features a jaw-dropping photo taken by Tony Miles of 70,000 Britannia against a snowy backdrop. The second of the new Christmas cards features a beautiful illustration by Phil Johnson of a winter trip to the Highlands depicting a steam train crossing a snowy viaduct. These special cards come in packs of 10 and cost £4.50 each.
The Railway Benefit Fund is a charity which focuses on the UK railway industry, helping current, retired and former railway workers and their families during difficult times. The sale of all goods from the Railway Benefit Fund Christmas Shop will go directly to supporting the Railway Family this Christmas.
