The Steam Era on the Mersey Railway 1886-1903. T.B.Maund. 2-19.
There is a great deal more to this article than that suggested by the title as electrification is covered, as well as an extensive examination of schemes which eventually led to the construction of the tunnel under the Mersey opened in 1886. Some of these schemes were unusual and included a proposal for a pneumatic railway. Proposals for extensions to convey freight and the possible involvement of the MSLR/GCR are also noted The lifts situated in Birkenhead and at St James in Liverpool were originally powered by hydraulics: the tower of the former still exists. Most of the photographs relate to the steam locomotives, but there is only one of the steam rolling stock. There are some illustrations of the original electric rolling stock and of the underground stations shortly after electrification. There is also a reproduction of a prospectus issued on 1 February 1884 seeking new capital which shows the involvement of two GWR directors. There is also a reproduction of a timetable of 1886 showing the remarkable intensity of the service operated on a steeply-graded underground railway with steam. Some of the steam locomotives passed to the Alexandra Docks Railway and were even incorporated into GWR stock, but only one is shown in this condition, others passed to various colliery lines, and one of these is now preserved. In the 1890s through carriages were sometimes worked to Ruabon, and on to Corwen, to Paddington and to Folkestone for the Continent. One was retained for hauling maintenance trains, but this was replaced by an ex-Metropolitan Railway 4-4-0T, and this was replaced by another (ex-Met No. 7) illustrated, and this by a GER J66 class (7297) purchased from the LNER in 1939 (also illustrated as MER No. 3). See also feature in Issue 5 page 27 et seq and letter in Issue 6 page 77 by Jeff Mullier on 0-6-4Ts sent to Richmond Vale Railway in Australia including the modifications performed by Beyer Peacock prior to export: steam brakes and new cab roofs. Gives dates Australian locomotives withdrawn except for ex-Mersey Railway No. 1 preserved at New South Wales TransportMuseum.

The Midland Railway's Line from Londonderry to Strabane by Stanley C. Jenkins. 20-45.
This is a rather strange contribution as many of the interesting "record" photographs have come from those taken by H.C. Casserley and show the line in use during its period of decline. The other photographs are typical works photographs of the 2-6-4T and 4-6-4T and work's photographs of earlier 4-6-0T and 4-4-4T designs for the CDRJC which worked into Londonderry over the MR/NCC line, and might better have been fitted into a feature on the locomotive stock of the County Donegal Railways.. The line iteself is described in the sort of detail associated with Wild Swan with illustrations of virtually every blade of grass at obscure halts. Nevertheless, this detail does extend to an illustration of the lower deck of the Craigavon Bridge on 19 April 1948 which shows the mixed gauge track with complex switches and crossings and a turntable, and even a tank wagon (narrow gauge) in the background. Reg Davies (3-80) corrects several assertions relating to reason that GNRI was not involved in this line (it had its own); the changeover from NCC to UTA instigated by the Government of Northern Ireland, and crews on CDRJC becoming "NCC" on Derry route. Author responded.strongly (RA 5 p. 58) to this letter and blamed politics both in mainland Britain and at Stormont for failure to incoprpoarte NCC into British Railways.

The Roberts Collection — an introduction by Phil Coutanche. 3-16.
Includes information on Mr F.A. Roberts who lived at Rosenberg in Beckenham: Roberts was clearly a man of wealth and lived in a substantial house and enjoyed golf and photography (using high quality equipment). The photographs were taken between 1894 and 1897. The collection is held by the South Eastern & Chatham Railway Society. Plea from R. Hawkins (4-43) to publish Continental items & minor errata: 0-6-2 tank not tender!..

Points arising. Reg Davies.
See Issue 2 page 20 et seq: "reasons" stated for certain "actions" were incorrect: GNRI not interested in traffic to Derry as had its own route (broad gauge). Crews operating the Londonderry line remained with CDRJC and did not become NCC. Government of Northern Ireland approached British Transport Commission for transferof lines operated by NCC to Ulster Transport Authority. This was accomplished during 1948. Response from Stanley C. Jenkins in RA 5 page 58..

A Mystery Accident. 70.
Accident probably involving GWR coaches Nos 549 (six-wheel luggage composite) and 312 (4-wheel luggage composite) and 0-6-0T with row of terrace-houses and goods shed; probably c1880. See Issue 6 page 78 letter from Christopher Redwood, author of The Weston, Clevedon & Portishead Railway (1981) which claims that location was Clevedon (GWR) and accident happened during running round at the terminus. John Lewis (RA 5 page 58) lists identies of carriages. Complete description and explanation of this accident: see Railway Archive No. 25 pp. 39-40..

Simmonds, Robin. The American 0-8-0s of the Port Talbot Railway.. 71-87
This very thoroughly researched infers that Walter James Hosgood, who was appointed Locomotive & Machinery Superintendent to the PTR on 1 March 1897, was incompetent in drawing up an inviation to tender document and in subsequent negotiations with the successful tenderer, the Cooke Locomotive Company, and their London agents. Subsequently further 0-8-2Ts were acquired from Sharp Stewart. Cited/quoted material includes the relevant RCTS parts (GWR), articles and books by Atkins, Ahrons, and articles by Rutherford. PRO archives are also cited. The illus. have mainly been published previously: 0-6-2T No. 120 supplied Cooke Locomotive Co. (Locomotive Magazine 1900 February); 0-8-2T No. 20 (manufacturer's photo. also reproduced Locomotive Magazine 1900 May); No. 21 in Duffryn Yard (Railway Magazine 1900 November) and No. 19 supplied Sharp Stewart. See Issue 6 pp 77-8 for letter from Desmond Coakham which argues that Churchward was eager to examine the PTR locomotives to establish methods of construction; there was a problem with the flat grates on top of the bar frames; cites David Allenden's articles in Model Rlys from the 1970s for survey of American practice. The valve spindles induced a rocking motion. In Issue 5 page 60 see latter from Mick Nicholson which gives full citation for David Allenden's contribution to Model Railways and letter from Peter Treloar who notes that the GWR reboilered the class in 1908: two illus in reboilered state and cites pp. K245-6 of RCTS Locomotives of the GWR. Part 10. Finally, Robin Simmons returns to subject, especially rebuilt locomotives in RA 7 page 74.

Painting Victorian trains. Anthony J. East. 3-13.
Dr East is an industrial chemist with considerable experience of dyeing synthetic fibres and an interest in both railway history and model railways. He begins with stressing the limitations of colour vision and colour perception. The composition of paints and their pigments are succinctly surveyed then each of the pigments available within the Victorian period is examined in turn: white, black, reds and browns, yellow (chrome yellow i.e. lead chromate), blues (originally very expensive, but synthetic materials became available in the 1870s), greens and vermillion. There is some especially useful information about Midland/LMS lake (crimson) and on the differences between Wolverhampton and Swindon green. Illus.: (colour): LBSCR 4-4-0 No. 213 Bessemer (yellow) and GNR 4-2-2 (A4 class) No. 266 (green) (both signed "F.Moore"; GCR 4-4-0 No. 694 (green) reproduced by chromlithography (see letter from George Huxley Issue 6 page 59)  coloured lantern slide of Victoria station with LNWR 0-6-0ST and LBSCR A1X Terrier coloured "blue"; coloured printed postcard of two GWR steam railmotors (railcars) with intermediate trailer at Ford Platform in Plymouth probably late 1905; b&w: details from LSWR S11 4-4-0 No. 395 showing flaking of paint on boiler and cover for cross water tubes, Plymouth 1907; paint making at a Glasgow factory in about 1920 in leather-lined wooden baths; three illus from album from Alexander Fergusson & Co.'s paint works in Port Dundas, Glasgow showing the manufacture of white lead from thin sheets of lead sheet exposed to acetic acid; the removal of the white lead from the plates and its packaging in sealed tins (none of the workers were wearing adequate protective clothing for this hazardous process; coloured: GER 4-4-0 No. 1870 (blue); MR 4-2-2 No. 116 (red) and LSWR No. 706 ("blue") caption states "205" page 11 lower: see letter from Roger Brasier RA 7 page 87 who owns print of same locomotive in more tradtional colour. (all chromolithography) and Märklin toy 4-4-0 Guage 1 (LNWR) in "Midland red" photographed outdoors with digital camera. This article led to an extensive, and predominantly appreciative correspondence. In Issue 6 there were letters on page 59 from the Author giving details of a Mander Brothers paint catalogue in his possession and further notes on Caledonian Railway blue which was probably lightened Prussian blue, called Antwerp blue in the catalogue; from Mike Grocock, partially on the various shades of North Eastern Railway (NER) Saxony green [a recent vision of V2 Green Arrow on the NNR displayed that the sound was perfectly imperfect; the clouds of smoke and steam, and the smell were wonderful, but the less said about the Brunswick green (plain black lettered "NE" would have been an improvement!)]; cites two books relevant to Victorian paints and a partial citation of Rly Engr., 1895 (October) on coach construction (including painting) by the CR; from Michael Hardy comment on the darkness of the colour illustrations and on the methods used for block making of the original "F. Moore" plates in The Locomotive..." and for the LPC coloured postcards. Terry McElarney adds appreciative comments..

The disgraceful affair of the Thomas Street Level Crossing or the town clerk who boobed. John R. Long. 14-25.
Errors made on the part of a former town clerk of Newport (Mon) and the failure of the Newport Improvements Commissioners to react correctly to the Bill for the South Wales Railway (subsequently the Great Western Railway) concerning a level crossing in the centre of Newport. The railway was prepared to make an initial provision for a bridge in spite of its legal justification for a level crossing, but the Commissioners would not accept this and a dispute was to run for twenty five years and only ended with Newport's objections to the Caerleon Loop and the conversion of the South Wales mainline from broad gauge to standard gauge forced a settlement. The cause of this dispute was due to the failure of the Solicitor to the Commissioners, Thomas Woollett to examine the Act for the South Wsales Railway. Illus.: contemporary mas (pre and post railway in colour); b&w image of Newport station in 1860s looking west; Thomas Street level crossing viewed from road. looking towards Kings Head Hotel and showing gates to crossing; railway view of crossing looking east (page 22): see letter from Mick Nicholson (Issue 6 page 77) stating that the device mentioned in the caption as a "locking bar" was a wheel chock; canal towpath under the railway line with part of freight train above and three policemen below (page 24): this last illustration and several points within the text are covered in a letter from Ray Caston (Issue 6 page 77): Caston argues that the illus. does not show towpath but start of work on Shaftsbury Street bridge; gives the closure date for Courtybella Station and states that Sirhowy did cross the Cardiff Road on a bridge (it was the replacement railway which bridged the road).

Ex-Cornish Minerals Railway 0-6-0T in transition to Lynn & Fakenham status
See Issue 6 (page 59) letters from  Brian Janes, Brian Lacey and Peter Treloar who consider that the photograph was probably taken whilst the locomotive was still in Cornwall before its transition to the Far East, although Lacey considers that it may have been taken at Sharp Stewart. It was probably CMR No. 12 (Sharp Stewart 2361/1874). Treloar thinks that the men are Cornish looking and suggests that Francis Trevithick was responsible for the design. He also notes that CMR No. 10 went via the Colne Valley & Halstead Railway to the South Hetton Colliery. Cites RCTS Locomotives of the Great Western Railway Part 3 and Clark's Illustrated history of M& GNR locomotives (1990). Nicholas May (RA 7 page 74) states the leading dimensions of these back-to-back locomotives..

The History of the steam locomotives of the Mersey and Mersey Electric Railways. Neil Parkhouse. 27-48.
Includes side and froont elevations drawn by E.J. Watson, and many photographs (the details of both of which are tabulated). The author notes that for clarity reference is always made to the numbers used by the Mersey Railway and not those used by successor-owners. Note many of the pages were printed in landscape format. Beyer Peacock supplied two types of locomotive to cope with the extremely severe conditions in the Mersey Tunnel which included gradients of 1 in 27 and the necessity for condensing apparatus: these were 0-6-4Ts and slightly later 2-6-2Ts. The former had double frames and inside cylinders, the latter had outside cylinders, and some which reached Swindon via the Alexandra Docks Railway emerged looking quite modern. The text supports the illustrations and includes a considerable amount on the Metropolitan Railway 4-4-0Ts Illus. (photographic unless shown otherwise):

Preston's The Richmond Vale Railway (1979) for the final disposal of the Australian former Mersey Railway locomotives, including the one preserved. See also letter from Philip Atkins (Issue 6 page 77) citing writer's own contribution in Rly Wld 1976 (March/April). Heavy flange wear was encountered on the 0-6-4Ts hence the development of the 2-6-2T type which incorporated water lubrication. Could not establish source of names, Burcot, Burnley and Banstead. GWR 1346 (0-6-4T) was fitted with a Belpaire boiler supplied by R & W Hawthorn Leslie.

Swift, Peter W. The Drummond 4-6-0s of the London & South Western Railway. 3-24.
A very detailed account of the Drummond four-cylinder 4-6-0s from the highly unsuccessful F13 and E14 designs which had been intended to operate expresses between Salisbury and Exeter, but which ended up hauling coal trains between Salisbury and Southampton, through the less unsuccessful G14 and P14 designs to the T14 class which was moderately successful. Some of the less successful types formed the basis for Urie rebuilds as 2-cylinder locomotives. The F13 class was unusual in combining Stephenson valve gear for the inside cylinders and Walschaerts for the outside. The illustrative material includes five broadside views of the varieties taken outside Exmouth Junction mpd. General arrangement drawings of the F13, T14 and G14 are also included with a warning on their dimensional accuracy (although it would seem improbable that Lottery funding could be achieved to build an F13). There are also views of the class in service. See also letter from Roger Brasier (RA 7 page 87) who comments on Eric Langridge's involvement in the design and his observations on scragging on the earlier types with widely separated pairs of cylinders. Ted Lloyd (RA 7 page 75 disputes claim that F13 was first 4-cylinder design for a British railway: Webb 1400 class for LNWR introduced in 1903. Further Pouteau illus of No. 331 in Number 15 page 79

See Issue No. 3 page 96 notes that CIE re-opened line from Fermoy to Waterford between Suir Bridge Junction and Ballymacourty Junction on 8 April 1970 to serve Quigly's Magnesite Works, but the line closed again in 1982. The Suir Bridge is now severed but a narrow gauge line exists near Kilmeadow. Also notes illustration of GCR No. 694 in Issue 5 page 6 and notes that the colour of the F. Moore print owned by writer and the one in George Dow's Great Central Vol. 2 fp. 278 are, not surprisingly, different.

Mystery locomotive identified. Peter Treloar
See Issue 5 illustration page 26 middle: all three writers agree that locomotive was certainly Cornwall Minerals Railway 0-6-0T before transfer to Lynn & Fakenham Railway. Treloar thinks that the men are Cornish looking and suggests that Francis Trevithick was responsible for the design.

Mersey Railway locos. Philip Atkins.
See Issue No. 5 page 27: cites writer's own contribution in Rly Wld 1976 (March/April). Heavy flange wear was encountered on the 0-6-4Ts hence the development of the 2-6-2T type which incorporated water lubrication. Could not establish sourced of names, Burcot, Burnley and Banstead.

Port Talbot Yankees. Desmond Coakham.
See Issue 4 page 71: argues that Churchward was eager to examine the PTR locomotives to establish methods of construction; there was a problem with the flat grates on top of the bar frames; cites David Allenden's articles in Model Rlys from the 1970s for survey of American practice. The valve spindles induced a rocking motion. See reply from Robin Simmons in RA 7 page 74..
Accident at Clevedon. Christopher Redwood. 78.

Eric Langridge had worked on these designs and was aware that the staggered pattern led to racking. Notes that an inline form was eventually adopted by Stanier for his Pacifics but that the Princess Royal and GWR 4-cylinder classes suffered from racking. Finally illustration shows him wearing a square bowler (not a top hat) (and KPJ was the coat an ulster?).

0-6-0ST Barry: Hunslet or Hudswell Clarke?
Issue 8 page 41 contains two letters both of which state that it was built by Hudswell Clarke (440/1896). John Fletcher states that it was probably in the hands of C.J. Wills & Sons Ltd during the construction of the London County Council Becontree Estate during the 1920s. Hugh Smith cites the The Hunslet Engine Works by D.H. Townsley (Plateway 1998) and The Railway Foundry Leeds 1839-1969 by R.N. Redman (Goose, 1972): the latter states that No. 440 was supplied to No. 2 Contract, Barry Docks.

Peter Swift (Issue 8 page 41) states that location was probably West Meon, certainly on Meon Valley line, but doubts whether was Opening Day (motive power for which is cited). Mick Hutson also suggests West Meon but argues that trees would not have been present and also suggests Clandon, Oxshott or Claygate (Oxshott being least improbable). Peter Treloar grabs it for Cornwall suggesting Wadebridge. But Melvin S. Lovell (RA 9 page 63) puts a very strong case for Privett on the Meon Valley line..

The Lee-on-the-Solent Railway. John Alsop. 4-25.
With additional notes by Neil Parkhouse. The Lee-on-the-Solent Railway was a branch off what had been the mainline between Bishopstoke (now Eatleigh) and Gosport which had opened in 1841/2. The new railway began at Brockhurst/Fort Brockhurst. It was incorporated on 5 July 1890 by a Board of Trade certificate and opened on 12 May 1894. Considerable savings could have been made if the line had been constructed after the 1896 Light Railways Act. Notes that the regular engine was Scott, a 2-4-0T built by George England in 1861 and shown at the Hyde Park Exhibition in 1862 following which it was sold to the Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway where it became No. 11. This locomotive is subject of letter from David Morton in Issue 15 page 43 who states that Scott did not become S&DR No. 11, but was acquired by the LSWR Engineer's Department and was named after Archibald Scott, the Traffic Manager, was moved to the Locomotive Department from January 1874, was sent to the Bodmin & Wadebridge line in Cornwall and returned in 1886. Also describes S&DR No. 11 which also came from George England..

Fidczuk. Peter. Gas by rail. Part 1: Early chlorine tanks. 42-50
Article begins with Wilfred Owen's poem which described a German attack with chlorine gas during WW1 and how this led to retaliation by the British which involved the transport of liquid chlorine and its eventual chemical manufacture into phosgene and mustard gas. The Kastner-Kellner Company manufactured the chlorine in Cheshire and Northumberland. All of the wagons illustrated were of the enclosed type in which the pressure vessel barrel was enclosed within a timber wagon body with a louvred ventilator above a "salt wagon" type of roof.

Viaduct and Midland Railway station.

Jackson, Alan A. The railways of Ferme Park, Harringay and Hornsey. 4-30.
In 1882 the Great Northern Railway obtained an Act to develop land between Finsbury Park and Hornsey for freight sidings. The new works included a flyover to assist locomotives to cross between the down and up yards and a new locomotive depot at Hornsey. Some damage was inflicted in WW1 from German bombing, but such damage was more severe in WW2. The LNER added some further sidings in 1930/1. Coal was the main traffic, much of it for depots south of the Thames. The Harringay Curve is described at length. Finally there is an up-market Steam World type of account of the honourable historian's copping (spotting) days on the Great Eastern and then on the Great Northern lines: a situation from the bridge on page 22 was especially popular and enabled him to see the Silver Jubilee and Coronation pass by. Observations of excursions arriving for major sporting events led to departures from home at 04.00: it is intriguing how those who disliked organised school sports rejoiced at the trains which carried spectators to major events. Letter R. Hawkins Issue 11 (p. 42) notes textual errors on p. 21 the prerved Stirling Single was a 4-2-2 not as stated and on p. 24 Hawkins used the access from Dagmar Road long after author suggests that its was closed. Writer also notes a "tunnel" under the mainline (see letter).

'Down Postal'. [correspondence].  40-2.
Midland bridges RA 8, Cambrian & front cover RA 9. Ian Griffiths.
In part this refers to the painting on the front cover of Issue 9 and suggests location of Pontypool Road (old station): this led to a further letter from Desmond Coakham (Issue 11 page 42) which considered the plausibility of Pontypool Road.
Pouteau update – RA9. Stephen Duffell. 41.

Hull & Barnsley Pouteau. Nick Fleetwood.
See listing in RA 9: H&B-1: which suggests a MR location and attempts to identify H&BR 2-4-0: see further letter from Mick Nicholson (Issue 11 p. 42) which states that probably No. 34 at Leeds Wellington Street 9 June 1906.
Pouteau Listings Part 9: Highland matters. David Stirling.
Information added to the notes on RA9: 80 upper (Ballinluig rather than Aberfeldy); 81 lower repeaters not distants, and 82 lower: Elgin not Forres
More on the Highland. Keith Fenwick. 42.
Issue 9: HR-20 (page 80 upper): first two Yankee Tanks went to the Highland on trial for a year in 1892 (not 1902 as stated). Jones found them satisfactory and recommended their purchase, which was confirmed in 1893. The other three were, as stated, also purchased in 1893. HR-27: (page 81 upper): Second vehicle was rib-sided vehicles built by Metropolitan C&W Co. in 1874 for opening of the Far North line. The two end compartments were coupes. The other vehicles are more difficult to identify but are flat sided and with beaded panelling, so are likely to be later Jones vehicles, built from 1878 onwards. HR-40: (page 82 lower): train approaching Elgin from the East not Forres.
Pouteau GW musiugs. Alan Woodard.
Issue 9 page 71 lower: claims photo of 'Duke' Class Vulcan has been reproduced before, in an article by Robert Reeves on the GW's 'Duke' and 'Bulldog' 4-4-0s, probably in BackTrack where it was credited to 'F. Burtt collection, NRM'. Burtt took the official photographs for the LB&SCR and was active in other parts of the country as well, such as South Wales; there are two views, FB521 and FB522, both taken at Neyland about the same period as the photo of Vulcan. The photo of Vulcan in BackTrack? shows a little more either end, including the fireman on the tender, the front buffers and half the PO wagon in the background. What can be seen of the latter reads: 'PYMAN', then underneath 'ORIENTAL' and under that 'No. 33'. Again in said article, there's a photo of 'Duke' Class Mendip about the same period, possibly taken by Burtt the same day, with the footbridge in the background.
Issue 9 page 75: 'Metro' tank is climbing Grosvenor Bank out of Victoria, not heading in as stated. In the background behind the engine is where the carriage sheds stand on the east (LC&DR) side of the line. Again published before but not sure where. Finally, I can't wait for the LB&SCR listings!

Observations regarding Burman and Pouteau. John Edgington.
Some comments on RA9. Cambrian photos, page 52 (lower): The locomotive looks like a 4-4-0 (No. 60? (From a blow-up of the scan, it could well be. Ed.) The first coach is an L&NWR 50 foot single-ended slip composite, Dia. D249. Pouteau, (page 85 upper): This may be a Railway Club visit. The gentleman at the right-hand end of the frame may be J.F. Gairns, at that time editor of The Railway Magazine.
A little flattery & more on LB&SC headcodes. Richard Greening.
Headcodes on the two Atlantics at Littlehampton on page 90 (upper) in Issue 9. No 38 carries the code for a Special on the Brighton-Portsmouth line, and the H2 is a Brighton-Littlehampton Special. The LB&SCR headcodes are given in The London Brighton and South Coast Railway by C. Hamilton-Ellis (Ian Allan 1960) and can also be found on the Brighton Circle website: www.lbscr.demon.co.uk.
A few small points. Brian Lacey.
Issue 9: top picture on the back cover is of an Ivatt LMS 2MT 2-6-0, not a BR Standard 4MT 4-6-0. Also view of GWR 0-6-0ST No. 1757 on page 69 upper may show substantial foliage on trees for a harsh mid-winter scene! See 'Fly Shunted' page 87, there is a better cab view of a Barnum on page 47 of Great Western Portrait: 1913-1921 compiled by Adrian Vaughan (OPC 1971)identified by the flat portion of the cab roof. Page 31 of the same volume has a view of '3226' Class No. 3230 at Didcot. There are also several views of' 3226's in different rebuild states in Locomotives Illustrated 92 (RAS Publishing 1993).
And a few more. Simon Turner.
Issue 9: interested in top picture on page 60: for middle of three vans on quay: type of van viewed in several distant photos yet not described in known LB&SCR literature; also mentioned line of MR wagons from an oblique perspective with a Bretby wagon closest to camera; and GWR train at Victoria LC&DR on page 75 train is leaving terminus not going in.. John Alsop agreed.
Ganging up. Mick Nicholson.
Terminology in caption on page 11 (Issue 9) is wrong: not 'gangers', but platelayers; by definition the ganger was in charge of a gang of men. Keith Fenwick ('Down Postal' page 63) asks about spacing of telegraph poles: average is 65 yards; round curves span may be reduced to 50 or 60 yards, depending on radius.
Lynx and more on West Sussex stations. A. Hemans.
See (1) article on the Roberts collection in Issue 9 page 62 upper: Royal Navy had a ship named Lynx in WW1: a destroyer of 935 tons, built by the London & Glasgow Company and, launched on 20th March 1913. See John Alsop's article on Railway postcards of West Sussex (Issue 9): Midhurst: The original LB&SCR station was nearly 600 yards to the west, not to east, of the one that opened in 1881. The L&SWR station was just under half a mile to west of the second LB&SCR station shown in the photograph. There seems to be several quoted closure dates for the L&SWR station, because it was used as a goods station for a short while after passenger closure. The closure dates are all for 1925 and are given as 4 April, and 12 and 13 July, so 13 July 1925 could be correct Rogate: The bay window was not part of the stationmaster's house but was Ladies Room. Editor notes use of Railway passenger stations in England, Scotland and Wales: a chronology (2nd Edition) by M.E. Quick (R&CHS, 2003).
Apostrophe or not 'trophe. Michael Dunn
In article on King's Heath, the upper caption, page 35, suggests that LMS did not use apostrophe on the station namesigns but this was not the case as the two illus. show. Both 'hawkseye' alloy nameplate and the enamelled steel lamp tablet form part of the collection held at Kidderminster Railway Museum

Jeuda, Basil. Return to Stoke Works. Part 4: 1927-2005. 43-65.
Robert Hyde & Sons took over the works from the LMS in the late 1920s to expand their manufacture of rolling stock components, such as axleboxes. The firm had started manufacture in Sheffield. The LMS continued to service locomotives at Stoke and most of the old North Staffordshire Railway's rather primitive fascilities remained in use until the end of steam. Although some of the key buildings have ceased to exist a surprising number are still extant. Part 3 began on page 23 of Issue 3.
