June 2023


Steam nostalgia and railway history at its best, Steam Days is the monthly magazine dedicated to all steam railway enthusiasts. With Rex Kennedy as editor, he has 80 years of railway memories to recollect, alongside the stories and tales retold by many of the contributors.

Steam Days covers the six regions of British railways in each edition; Western, Southern, London, Midland, Eastern, and Scottish, with the occasional article on Irish railways and the industrial scene.

Packed with fully illustrated articles, Steam Days covers the history of the railways of Great Britain from the early days of the 1800s through to the end of steam on British Railways in August 1968.
