BRITAIN’S 20 BEST SEASIDE HERITAGE RAILWAYS | Want to get away to the coast for a day or weekend break, or maybe longer? Robin Jones and Gareth Evans revisit the splendid variety of heritage railways by the sea – and highlight what they have on offer this August and September, including special events and motive power.

25 YEARS OF ‘IMPOSSIBLE’ SUCCESS SET TO CONTINUE | Market-leading new-build organisation The A1 Steam Locomotive Trust has been marking two landmark anniversaries – not just from its own history, but that of the heritage sector as a whole, writes Robin Jones.

NENE VALLEY RAILWAY SKILLS FOR THE FUTURE | Gareth Evans learns about how the Nene Valley Railway runs its youth group, recently boosted by the award of a £24,000 grant from train operating company LNER to further its good work in developing talent for the national and heritage railway sectors alike.
