The latest edition of Steam Railway is a ‘9F’ special, as we celebrate all things ‘Spaceship’ in anticipation of unique single-chimney No. 92134’s return to steam.
As part of our ‘Class 9’ celebration, we tell the fascinating story of the under-restoration 2-10-0’s incredible life in preservation, round-up all nine survivors, and discover what it is like to live with one of the most famous preserved examples – No. 92203 ‘Black Prince’ – as well as explore all the variants of BR’s last-built steam design.
It is not all about ‘9Fs’ however, as we discover what impact the £4.4 million grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund will have on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
As always, we bring you the very latest news, comment and analysis from the world of steam preservation, including:
· ‘Big Boy’ No. 4014 returns to steam after 60 years
· RVP plots TPO main line return
· West Somerset launches £250k track appeal
· Tyseley ‘Bloomer’ set for relaunch
· Full coverage of ‘GBXII’ railtour
There’s all this and more in the latest edition of Steam Railway – the world’s biggest selling steam magazine – on sale now!
