5First Lines

6Yugoslavia – 1965 Remarkable colour photographs recall the much-loved Yugoslavian narrow gauge. A three-part feature begins with the main line from Dubrovnik to Belgrade via Sarajevo.

12Steam over Sargan Pass Something of the spirit and atmosphere of the Dubrovnik to Belgrade line is captured in a heroic initiative that is reviving one of its most spectacular sections.

14Anniversary in the Ardennes Stééfan Paitoni celebrates forty years of the delightful Tramway Touristique de l’Aisne, one of the preservation pioneers of mainland Europe.

17“It’s a shame they didn’t keep the wee train” The Clogher Valley Railway has not been forgotten by the Irish communities it served, despite closing on the first day of 1942.

19The Locomotive Builders The history of W G Bagnall Ltd, sadly unique in being deliberately closed down when its order book was full.
