Contents Listing - Articles & Features in this issue
The Crane Train: Alan Farnshaw follows up his article (Steam World, May 1992) on development of breakdown trains in the BR era by considering the substantial order placed by the BTC for new cranes in 1959. These large cranes were the last steam-powered equipment ordered for BR, but was the money wisely spent?
Coal from Bargany: Photographer Derck Cross lived in Glasgow & South Western territory. Not far from his home, the coal mine at Bargany offered the prospect of workaday steam in a picturesque environment, frequently double-headed - and it lasted into the twilight of steam in south-west Scotland
A Day at Bourne End: With his father, Stephen Gordon spent many days during his school holidays at the lineside recording the passing trains in considerable detail. Only one of these logs now survives but it paints a remarkable picture of summer traffic on the West Coast main line in 1959.
Crewe Departmentals: The BR departmental fleet of the 1950s included a remarkable mixture of veteran locomotives, Sentinels, crane tanks, narrow gauge engines and early internal combustion types. Crewe works retained a substantial fleet. Gerald T. Robinson recorded the survivors in 1960 on colour film and the Editor added a few earlier monochrome print from Bill Potter
Devon & Somerset journey: Glorious north Devon was bisected by two secondary routes, the Exc Valley and Tone Valley lines, which provided steam traction in picturesque settings at a time when steam was fading from the WR main lines. Chris Gammell set out to obtain some interesting photographs and old tickets for his collection before it was too late
Signs of their Time: Though BR introduced its own style for signs, using enamelled plates in the six regional colours, vast numbers of cast iron notices - many from pre-Grouping companies - continued in use. This photographic feature brings together a selection of diverse examples
Favourite journey - Favourite Engine: Many Swindon followers mourn the extinction of the 'Grange' 4-6-Os, which arc best remembered for their work in the West of England. Chris Leigh has fond memories of the wayside stations on the Oxford-Worcester line, linked by a particularly enjoyable journey behind a favourite 'Grange'
Tunbridge Wells - A Border Town: The Royal spa town of Tunbridge Wells, on the borders of Kent and Sussex, was also on the borders of the SECR and the LBSCR. Neil Sprinks recalls the variety of motive power which persisted right through to the end of steam.
Platform: This month, a bumper crop of letters looks at the colour of Gordon Highlander, the origin of the nickname 'semi,' running-in from Crewe and 'B17s' on the Woodhead route, among the matters prompted by recent items in Steam World.
Reviews - Our monthly look at the new offerings in videos and books includes a range of subjects from the Leek & Manifold Light Railway to the 'Dockers' Umbrella'.

Front cover: Following its overhaul at Crewe - as the last BR steam locomotive to receive works attention - 'Britannia' 4-6-2 No. 70013 Oliver Cromwell rounds the curve at Kirkham, en route to Blackpool with a special train in December 1967. Read the latest news on the project to return No. 70013 to the main line and Bressingham Museum's refusal to release the locomotive back to the National Railway Museum in our sister journal Steam Railway.
