Yellow hulls, brown coaches, snout-cockpits, and block-style forward parts of trains, old and new, all bring in a knock-on effect on the reader of this collector’s issue, known as, 50 Great British Locomotives. It is the essential guide of the steam-age locomotives,as Charles Dickens may have seen them. It is also the ride into a later epoch when the diesel train was the vogue. And now, it is the age of the Euro Star, running on electric gears across the British Isles and the Channel. It is here that the ranking for these great fuel guzzlers can be seen in a hundred-page spread. Some of them have emitted plumes of smoke into the atmosphere for more than a century.
50 Great British Locomotives has gone digital, all in its single edition. Readers can obtain this piece of curiosity in a modern wrapping and save 3% off the hook. Reading formats include Android, iPad, iPhone, Mac and PC magazine subscriptions.
