In this month’s edition of Steam Railway, we celebrate the return to steam of our cover star – ‘Castle’ No. 7029 Clun Castle – which is ready for its first main line runs in thirty years.
Further celebrations abound, as Toby Jennings marks the tenth anniversary of the LMS-Patriot Project and The Unknown Warrior, preservation’s leading lights commemorate the life and work of David Shepherd, and Thomas Bright celebrates Holy War – the last ‘Quarry Hunslet’ at work in the Dinorwic slate quarry, 50 years ago this month.
With Christmas just around the corner, we present our four-page festive gift guide, filled with excellent present ideas for enthusiasts of all kinds.
Steam Railway’s online community reveals which pre-Grouping Scottish engine they’d like to see steam again, and we ask you to vote on what was the best gala or enthusiast event of the year. Let us know here.
As always, Steam Railway brings you the very latest news from the world of preservation, including the recent Parliamentary debate on NRM disposals, the latest plans for the ‘T3’, and a luxury £30,000 railtour behind new-build ‘A1’ No. 60163 Tornado.
