In this month’s edition of Steam Railway, you’ll find:
A 25-page celebration of the ‘Britannias’, with the late Dick Hardy’s memories of working with the Riddles ‘7MTs’, as well as an in-depth history of the class prototype, No. 70000 Britannia.
A tribute to Sir William McAlpine – the man who rescued Flying Scotsman, had his own private railway and contributed so much to railway preservation. We also have part two of A1SLT Operations Director Graeme Bunker’s interview, exploring the trust’s future main line ambitions and the ‘P2’.
As always, we bring you the very latest news, comment and analysis from the world of preservation, including the first steam services to Broadway, the L&B getting planning permission to extend to Blackmoor, Oliver Cromwell gaining an extension to its boiler certificate and the ‘Grange’ to go main line with Tyseley.
