Steam to the Mountains

by Steam Railway |

You’ll notice a different look to this month’s Steam Railway, as we feature an illustrated cover for only the second time in the magazine’s history.

This is part of our ‘Steam to the Mountains’ theme, with 24 pages dedicated to spectacular scenery and stunning photography from some of the world’s greatest mountain railways.

There’s an in-depth feature looking at steam’s renaissance on the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway, with three locomotives entering service within months of each other, making the ‘Ratty’s’ fleet the strongest it’s been in years. We also discover the joys of the ‘Jacobite’ and celebrate this Scottish success story.

Elsewhere, we find out what happened on the recent Steam Railway readers’ trip to the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, and discover the history behind Leicester’s ‘forgotten’ railway museum.

As always, we bring you the very latest news, comment and analysis from the world of steam railway preservation, including:

· 92134 and 46441 move to new homes for restoration

· Tornado fails on first 90mph railtour

· ‘Caley’ gala planned at Bo’ness

· 82045 is wheeled for the first time

· Car collides with Countess at Welshpool

There’s all this and more in the latest edition of Steam Railway – the world’s biggest selling steam magazine. On sale now!
