LCM3.DL: The Locomotive Magazine Part 3 1954-1959 and 1894-1913 as a Download.
NEW OCTOBER 2023. This is our final part of the Locomotive Magazine trilogy. It is available solely as a download. All its various items provide you with just over 2700 pages of reading.
its contents fall into two distinct parts. The section labelled 1954 to 1959 continues with our sequence of yearly volumes of the Locomotive Magazine right through to the final issue of November 1959. After that date it became incorporated into Trains Illustrated, and a brief account of this process is provided. You will also get the relevant parts of the January 1960 copy of Trains Illustrated, which was the first such combined edition. You can see a list of the main contents from 1954 to 1959 HERE.
Since we published the first issues of the Locomotive Magazine back in Part 1, more material has become available to us and this is what forms the basis of the second section, labelled 1894-1913. What we think is a complete set of the early Locomotive Magazine special supplements (which were complete magazines, sold separately) are provided, as well as a few other items such as their 1913 calendar. Other bonus items include F Moore's 1894 catalogue of their photographs (two years before they launched their Moore's Monthly, which would become the Locomotive Magazine). At the time of the catalogue they seemed to be supporting another little-known publication called Railway World which was circulating then, and a two-part 1895 article from that on locomotives of the GER is provided.
A very substantial bonus you will get is all 42 issues of Locomotives and Railways, which considered itself a rival to the Locomotive Magazine. Produced in Manchester, it first came out in January 1900 and managed to survive until half way through Volume 4 with the issue for June 1903. A list of its main contents can be viewed HERE.
As with the Locomotive Magazine volumes, we also had this publication professionally scanned. There are indexes for the three completed volumes, and we have added to every volume its list of contents and have compiled a single search facility for them all. If you would be interested just in Locomotives and Railways, we have made that available on its own as L&R.DL.
What you will get if you make a purchase from this page is a link to download all the LCM3 files, exactly as they would appear on a DVD. The files are big, totalling about 1.2 GB. Inevitably they will take quite a while to download, therefore, depending on the speed of your internet connection.
That link will be available as soon as payment has been made. You go to your account and click on ‘Downloads’. New customers create an account as they place their order.
