Looks a fun issue!


The Traction mag feature here makes me feel old - when I was first reading the mag back in the late 90s & 00's, alongside the fascinating old stories from the BR days, they'd occasionally have a current-day section at the front with key workings that month - now enough time has passed that a '67' has made the cover itself - where has the time gone 😂


Off to stock up on the Werther's now...!

That was my first thought, too.  But it was May 2000, 24 vanished years ago, when I made the effort to catch their fleeting appearance on the overnight mails at Bristol TM.  I hadn't even got a digital camera back then! 😳

"That's a bit modern" - a quarter of a century ago. It's a question I've asked myself over the years I've been editor. At what stage is something eligible to be included in Traction? Given that the chances of seeing 67s on scheduled passenger services are almost certainly past I think there's a place for them in Traction's pages.


By the way I'm just back from a trip on the West Highland Oban line - Class 156s on full power, windows open and jointed track - what a auditory experience. I guess another few years and they'll be replaced with battery multiple units. Perhaps the 156s will be mourned by enthusiast after they're gone!
