In the latest edition of Steam Railway, we explore the problems posed by bridges and the challenges in keeping them fit for the 21st century, by sharing the contrasting experiences of two heritage lines – the North Yorkshire Moors and Nottingham Heritage railways.

With British coal production now effectively over, we outline what this means for the preservation movement and what the options are moving forward. With this in mind, legendary BR and main line steam footplateman Ray Churchill shares his wealth of experience to explain good firing technique to minimise smoke.

Elsewhere, the Great Western Society’s Peter Chatman recalls Earl Bathurst’s extraordinary journey from Barry to Didcot while we get the latest on the restoration of Ivatt ‘2MT’ 2-6-0 No. 46428 and go behind-the-scenes of the Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway’s new Steaming Ahead engineering facility.

There’s all this and more, including the latest news, comment and analysis from across the railway preservation world, in the latest edition of Steam Railway.
