What's in this Issue?
The development of Swiss electric locomotives in the 1960s and 1970s is covered looking at the highly successful Bo-Bo and Bo-Bo-Bo designs. For wagon enthusiasts we see the Steel Coil A being used to convey imported steel coils from Hamworthy in Dorset to Llanwern in South Wales. The Western Locomotive Association describes what is involved in the ‘Western Ranger’ bogie overhaul. There is a photo feature of the Class 73 electro-diesel hauling freight trains on the Southern Region. Then we follow an enthusiast on his travels behind the Brush Type 2s starting with suburban trains out of Moorgate and King’s Cross in the 1960s. The ‘Little North Western Line’ between Settle Junction, Morecambe and Carnforth is the location for a superb collection of historic photographs of diesel and electric power. In the modelling section we look at an N gauge layout based in spectacular scenery in the north of England and the superb new O Scale model of the ill fated ‘Clayton’ Bo-Bo diesel.
