The May issue of The Railway Magazine will feature an exclusive story where, exactly 50 years, campaigners gained an injunction preventing British Rail closing it.  Gary Boyd-Hope will look at the positive impact on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway who re-opened its line to the tourist trap of Broadway 12 months ago, and Nick Pigott concludes his historical analysis on steam locomotive coaling towers and ash disposal plants. Plus there will be the latest news including Abellio’s successful bid for the East Midlands Railway franchise.

Also, to mark the 190th anniversary of the staging of the Rainhill Trials in 1829, this issue of The Railway Magazine features a FREE DVD . Join editor Chris Milner and deputy editor Gary Boyd-Hope as they explore the legacy of the trials, the technologies of the competitors that took part, and the stories of the men who built them.

From the original Rocket to Sans Pareil, their journey takes them from Manchester’s Science & Industry Museum and the terminus of the Liverpool & Manchester Railway, to the National Railway Museum (NRM) in York by way of Rainhill itself and Locomotion in Shildon.

On the way they discover more about George and Robert Stephenson and the development of Rocket from early railways historian Dr Michael Bailey, learn of Timothy Hackworth’s engineering achievements from the NRM’s Anthony Coulls, and examine some of the museum’s Rainhill-related archive treasures with head curator Andrew McLean.

Filmed in March 2019, this unique programme has been specially produced for the readers of The Railway Magazine.

The May issue is scheduled to be mailed w/c 29th April
