LCM2.DVD: The Locomotive Magazine Part 2, 1924-1953.
NEW APRIL 2023. This is a follow-on from our much-acclaimed Locomotive Magazine 1896 to 1923. Part 2 runs from January 1924 to December 1953 – thirty volumes, 360 issues and about 10,000 pages. The new scanning company we used has produced equally good but more compact files, so they all fit on one DVD. The quantity of information provided here is nevertheless comparable to that in Part 1.
The layout is similar to the previous part except that the magazines are this time arranged as thirty annual files, rather than as separate issues. Bonus files include the story of the Locomotive Magazine (as was also featured in Part 1) plus the substantial supplement issued by the Locomotive Magazine in 1925 to mark the centenary of railways, together with the very different equivalent production by the LNER. (That last pair have already been issued by us as Files RH090 and RH089 respectively.)
The official indexes for all the volumes are included. We have also compiled a 50-page list of the main contents of every issue, to help with browsing – you can see this HERE. In addition we provide an index to the topics covered in readers’ letters, to remedy a shortfall in some of the official indexes. We have also organised a facility to carry out a speedy single word-search of all 360 copies of the Locomotive Magazine plus the bonus files.
The identical set of files, around 3.5 GB, is also available as a direct download. This will be available as soon as the order is placed, with no contribution towards postage to add on. You order that HERE.
We very much regret that this DVD can be posted only to UK addresses owing to difficulties we have experienced with customs duties. Overseas customers are of course still more than welcome to purchase the download version – you will receive the same files without incurring the inevitable considerable delay. If you have serious misgivings as to whether your local internet will be up to the task, please feel free to consult us at email@example.com.
It is hoped that a Part 3 will be issued eventually (perhaps during 2024). This will cover all the remaining issues of the Locomotive Magazine that appeared as a separate title, which was up to November 1959. It should also prove possible to include Addenda to Part 1, such as supplements not available previously.
