Just out is issue 27 of the S&D Telegraph, surely the best in-house magazine of any independent railway in the UK!
44 pages, no advertising, colour cover, great articles. Who could resist it? As well as coverage of the 40th anniversary events and the usual departmental reports, there are articles on Peak Oil, Tony Howe's emotive recollection of the last day, a report on the failed railtour when the two locos failed at Exeter and a reprint of Ivo Peters' article on the S&D 2-8-0s which originally appeared in Trains Illustrated in April 1956.
All members get 3 or 4 issues of the Telegraph each year, it can also be sent by mail order or collected from the shop at just £2.95. Back issues of numbers 25 and 26 have already sold out, despite us printing hundreds of extra copies!
