Steam Railway Issue 528

In Steam Railway SR528, we mark 30 years since we helped save the iconic ‘Windcutter’ wagons for the Great Central Railway. Project manager Philip Herrick tells the story of how the BR mineral wagons were saved and the group’s plans to have 30 of these vehicles running to mark the anniversary.

Elsewhere, broadcaster and historian Tim Dunn showcases ten of Britain’s best camping coaches, we go behind the scenes of the restoration of ‘Merchant Navy’ General Steam Navigation and the scheme to return it to its original air-smoothed guise, while Mark Pearce explores the BR locomotives that enjoyed second lives in industrial use. That’s not all, as we also have our 2022 Events Guide to help you plan the year ahead, plus all the latest news, comment and analysis from the world of preservation.
