What's in this Issue?

In this issue of TRACTION we look at Barnetby in 1989 and 1990 against the backdrop of the wide variety of semaphore signals that controlled operations. We then visit Crewe early in 1975 to witness night-time operations. David Hayes continues his study of the Midland Main Line concentrating on the Luton area in the days before electrification. Like many enthusiasts in the 1970s and 1980s Nick Edmunds was something of a loco haulage fan sampling the many local trains that were powered by the smaller diesels such as Class 25 and 31. Colin Boocock pays a visit to Dresden where he has several encounters with older locomotive types now in their declining years. David Ratcliffe looks at the variety of intermodal trains that EWS operated in the early years of the 21st century. Gavin Morrison continues his series about the Manchester to Leeds Trans Pennine route concentrating on the section east of Standedge Tunnel between Marsden and Huddersfield. In TRACTION MODELLING we feature a superb N Gauge layout which is based closely on the actual location of Peak Forest with heavy stone traffic the main focus of the layout.
