Breaking BR’s steam ban
October marked the 50th anniversary of ex-GWR ‘King’ No. 6000 King George V leading the return to steam on the main line. Chris Milner recalls how the ban was broken, and how steam then developed under British Rail up to the point when the railways were Privatised.
Putting it bluntly
John Heaton FCILT rounds off his coverage of the ill-fated GBRf ‘This time it’s personal’ tour, before looking at some extra detail of the West Coast Main Line record attempt earlier this year, and then comparing attacks on the climb to Whiteball summit in Somerset by different traction.
