    Steam Railway SR483 - on sale NOW!

    To celebrate this momentous announcement, we get under the skin of the Ffestiniog Railway’s own new-build L&B Manning Wardle, No. E190 Lyd, and explore the history of the famous L&B 2-6-2T quartet of Yeo, Exe, Taw and Lew.

    It’s not all about the L&B this month however. We also mark the 50th anniversary of Tyseley Locomotive Works and see how this preservation stalwart has developed over the years, as well as round up both the Severn Valley and Great Central railways’ 1968 commemorative end-of-steam events.

    There's also a FREE commemorative DVD covering the end-of-steam railtours in August 1968, courtesy of our partners at Unseen Steam.*

    As always, we bring you the very latest news, comment and analysis from the world of preservation, including:

    · ‘P2’ No. 2007 Prince of Wales gets its driving wheels

    · Isle of Wight launches restored LBSCR four-wheeler at island loco spectacular

    · Bahamas to launch at Tyseley 50th anniversary event

    · Swanage Railway makes £200k loss

    · ‘The Duke’ needs another £100k to steam in 2020

    There’s all this and more in the latest edition of Steam Railway – the world’s biggest steam news magazine, on sale NOW!

    *Unfortunately, the DVD is not available to Lloyds subscribers

    The OED defines 'exclusive' in this context as '(of an item or story) not published or broadcast elsewhere.'
    As far as I can see the L&B story had not been announced anywhere else, so therefore it fits the definition of exclusive. I don't see what the problem is?

    If you don't like the magazine, don't buy it, if their headlines annoy you so much, don't comment on it - simple!

    Eh? Not sure why you've quoted me there don, as your issues do not relate to my quote.
