Steam nostalgia and railway history at its best, Steam Days is the monthly magazine dedicated to all steam railway enthusiasts.
With Rex Kennedy as editor, he has 80 years of railway memories to recollect, alongside the stories and tales retold by many of the contributors.
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 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 new August edition of Steam Days includes…

The first public railway on the Isle of Man, 150 years have now passed since the Douglas to Peel route opened, and nearly 55 since it closed – Andrew Kennedy takes us along the line through a series of views spanning 1873 to 1968.

Heading for the Scottish hills
With a passion for walking and for recording locomotives hard at work, A G S Davies was naturally drawn to the more testing territory of western and northern Scotland, with these memories centring on his Scottish rail travels between 1960 and 1964.
