That looks good. Hopefully the ones on the other regions will follow swiftly.

Hmmmm

 

Is it going to cover ALL depots in an organised fashion, just the larger ones, or larger ones first etc?

Will it be on sale via railway bookshops as none had a copy at today's Doncaster show?

Part 1 = LMR Central and Western (Southern) lines, so, 

 

London Western Division, 

Birmingham Division

Stoke and Chester Divisions

Manchester Division

Liverpool Division

 

over 25 depots are profiled separately and a further half dozen or more looked at.

Wouldn't have thought so, the point of a bookazine is that they are available on the shelves of newagents.

I couldn't find this in WH Smiths today, either at Glasgow Central station or in the Argyle St and Sauchiehall St stores.

That's great thanks......something to look forward to, is there a way to find out in advance when each issue is due in the shops or available to order online?

Got a copy today at Cardiff Central.
.
Quite a bit of interest, and which was new to me.
.
Only one minor quibble, and not the fault of the author, a handful of the images are printed too large in size resulting in lack of definition.
.
This has happened in other bookazines e.g the series on BR freight, so not the fault of the author.
.
Most of the other, quality images, are new to me, so justified the purchase.
.
Roll on the Western Region edition.
.
All in all, value for money ( a couple of pints !)
