The Railway Magazine provides the latest news, Steam & Heritage, modern traction and reviews – and our brand new October issue is out now!
It is probably a stretch of the imagination to describe Queen Elizabeth II as a rail enthusiast – or at least, not officially. But taking into account all her interactions with trains and railways during her record-breaking 70-year reign, both at home and abroad, and often with much obvious enjoyment, then she must surely count as an honorary one at the very minimum!
As a tribute to the monarch who passed away on September 8, this month we look back through The Railway Magazine archives to uncover some of her railway highlights since she acceded to the throne in February 1952.
Also, in this issue…
Steam & Heritage
Energy costs are anything but electrifying; ‘9F’ for Midsomer Norton; Churchward County forges ahead; Hagley Hall relaunched; Mogul whets appetites.
Railway steps in to support mourners for the Queen; Ryde Pier to close for repairs; ‘Deltic’ Royal Scots Grey returns to the main line; New trains for Britain on show at Innotrans; and more.
