Steam Days

PREVIEW: December edition of Steam Days magazine

Steam nostalgia and railway history at its best, Steam Days is the monthly magazine dedicated to all steam railway enthusiasts.

Steam Days covers the six regions of British railways in each edition; Western, Southern, London, Midland, Eastern, and Scottish, with the occasional article on Irish railways and the industrial scene.

Packed with fully illustrated articles, Steam Days also covers the history of the railways of Great Britain from the early days of the 1800s through to the end of steam on British Railways in August 1968. The December edition of Steam Days includes:


Moving the goods: Scotland

In a period of change, John Macnab offers a 

personal perspective on freight operating practices as it concerned the Scottish Region of British Railways in the mid-1950s and into the 1960s.

Wigan’s LMS lines: A historical view

Stanley C Jenkins MA takes a detailed look at the lines from various railway companies in the Wigan area that became part of the LMS network in 1923, and later BR (London Midland Region) territory.


Steam Days in colour

Over the years countless visits to engine sheds were undertaken by railway enthusiasts in search of a ‘cop’, or perhaps to take photographs, the latter enabling Rex Kennedy to take this random steam era tour of Western Region sheds.

The latest issue of Steam Days magazine is on sale now.
