Rail Express - January 2019

English | 116 pages | True PDF

This is the final issue produced in 2018, and what a year it has been for diesel and electric enthusiasts. Standout highlights for me include our Class 50 tour to Carlisle and the Cumbrian Coast in spring, and then the Severn Valley Railway’s magnificent ‘Hoover’ gala in autumn – who would have thought we would have so much ‘50’ action a quarter of a century after they were withdrawn by British Rail. GBRf’s four-day marathon tour around the country was another unforgettable event, plus at the other end of the spectrum was the return to service recently of the NER 1903 Autocar – the stunning restoration and importance of which has now quite rightly been recognised by the Heritage Railway Association.
