Steam Railway – Issue 470£4.25
Steam Railway stalwart David Wilcock brings Old Oak Common MPD to life with his stunning recollections of 81A’s twilight years in the late 50s/60s, ahead of the former Great Western Railway shed’s last hurrah on September 2 with a terrific line-up of locomotives.
The Southern Railway’s past was honoured in two very different ways last month. The Mid-Hants Railway’s spectacular ‘Summer Steam Gala’ recalled the glory days of 1967 and the end of Southern steam, and Toby Jennings has been speaking to the people who were there keeping the flames alive for future generations.
Another small part of the Southern Railway’s history was resurrected at Ross-on-Wye with the steaming of the new-build Lynton & Barnstaple Railway Baldwin No. 762 Lyn. Thomas Bright examines how this unique little locomotive will help shape the future of the L&B.
Thomas Bright takes another look at the future, in the shape of the new-build ‘P2’ No. 2007 Prince of Wales – a locomotive that is halfway to completion.
In the present, we celebrate the Foxfield Railway’s 50th anniversary, round-up all ten surviving LMS ‘Jinties’ and conclude our in-depth interview with the National Railway Museum’s Head Curator and Assistant Director Andrew McLean.
As always, Steam Railway brings you the very latest standard gauge, narrow gauge, Irish, main line and industrial steam news from across the UK and around the world.
You can read all this and more in the latest edition of Steam Railway – the world’s biggest selling steam magazine. On sale now!
