Steam Days

PREVIEW: January issue 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 brand new January edition of Steam Days includes:

193: Inter-regional trains to and from Hampshire

We track the long distance services of the Hampshire coast that ran via Basingstoke and Oxford, and their much expanded links to various northern industrial towns.

1930s ‘Little North Western’

The discovery of an album of 1930s photographs of the Midland and ‘Little North Western’ lines between Leeds and Hellifield enables Andrew Wilson to highlight the diverse motive power used at that time.

Carlisle’s LNER engine sheds

Roger Griffiths and John Hooper cover the evolution of the Newcastle & Carlisle Railway, Port Carlisle Dock & Railway, Carlisle & Silloth Bay Railway & Dock and North British Railway locomotive facilities west of Citadel station, culminating in the provision of Canal shed.
