What's in this Issue?
A former railwayman talks about the development of loco liveries at Glasgow Eastfield, concentrating on the ‘large logo’ period. We start a major new series about the UKF fertiliser trains that could once be seen all over Britain. There is also a detailed look at the final day of operations on the Woodhead Line. If you have ever wondered why rail travel is so safe our article ‘Cracks, documents and standards’ will go some way to explaining this. The days of locomotive haulage on the Cambrian are long gone but we can relive them through photographs. We recall the last few summer Saturdays when pairs of Class 25s brought long trains of Mark 1 coaches to Aberystwyth.
TRACTION MODELLING features a superb N gauge layout, Bluebell Summit; it’s based on the West of England main line in the blue period complete with ‘Westerns’, Class 50s and HSTs. It features stunning scenery, including a large viaduct, and full length trains. Our review section looks at the marvellous new Bachmann Class 24/0.
