What's in this Issue?
Also in this issue; Bridgwater, in Somerset, was, by comparison, a minor freight centre but still had the ‘Bridgwater Tripper’. We conclude the fascinating story of a railwayman’s experience when based at Bristol Bath Road depot. We look at BR’s once extensive operation of special passenger trains over Bank Holiday weekends showing specials to the Lancashire coast in the Preston and Wigan areas. Many the enthusiasts have discovered that Tamworth is an excellent location to watch and photograph freight traffic as its location where the Birmingham to Derby line crosses the West Coast Main Line makes it a good vantage point and we have a major feature about this station. We also take a glimpse at the ‘Other Blue Pullman’ that utilised repainted Mark 2 coaches and Class 47s. In TRACTION MODELLING our featured layout is Aldergrove an N Gauge terminus.
