East Coast Speed Up - In 'Locomotive Practice & Performance', Peter Semmens tells of the high-speed progress being made on the East Coast Main Line, and looks at the route's 1990 timetable changes.
Fifties File - There was such a variety of motive power readily available to British mainland railway enthusiasts in the 1950s that few bothered to look 'over the water" at the activities in Northern Ireland. Neil Sprinks did, though, and gives a fascinating glimpse of the motive powera€which even included horses!
Platform 5 Review - For readers who like to keep completely up to date. Platform 5 presents its monthly traction and rolling stock review.
On with the Show - After many months of planning and hard work, the National Railway Museum has just opened the doors on its 'Great Railway Show'. We report on a superb exhibition which celebrates the Railway Age from the 1820s to the present day.
'Scotts' and 'Glens' - Eric Sawford remembers the former North British 4-4-0s of the 'Scott' and 'Glen' classes which were a familiar and well-loved sight in Scotland for many years. Once more, the photographic coverage is exceptional.
David Weston's Art - It was the fearsome sight and sound of a 'Jubilee' 4-6-0 trailing flames as the fireman tried to kick the firebox door shut after a blow-back that prompted the young David Weston to run home and produce one of his first railway paintings. Peter Kelly visits this likeable artist at his Leicestershire home.
Napier Fever - Michael Timms writes about the two restored green ""Deities', Nos. D9000 Royal Scots Grey and D9016 Gordon Highlander. Once again we've found some stirring photographs of these locomotives in their heyday.

Glory of the LNER - David St. John Thomas reflects on the railway that was 'many LNERs rolled into one', yet worked surprisingly well.
Vic Berry's Big Move - Chris Milner reveals a bold plan to re-site the Leicester firm which is equally at home restoring or breaking up railway stock.
