Steam Days

PREVIEW: March 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 March edition of Steam Days includes:


The ‘Royal Scot’ nameplates and crests

John Magnall looks at the LMS naming policy for the ‘Royal Scot’ class, and the company’s negotiations with the various regiments as the military theme expanded through much of the fleet.

Trains that went backwards

Eric Stuart offers a detailed account of the various fascinating station movements performed in the days of steam by arriving and departing trains in the United Kingdom, Ireland and continental Europe.

195: The Collett ‘Castle’ class 4-6-0s

The Great Western ‘Castle’ class came on to the scene in 1923 and was known to be the most powerful express passenger type in the country. We pay tribute to the class through the 1950s and 1960s work of the late Dick Riley.
