 A photograph from the far off pre-health and safety days. It's the 24th August 1947 and the Manchester Locomotive Society have got together with the Birmingham Locomotive Club to run a trip over the Ashover Light Railway in Derbyshire. The train consists of open wagons hauled by Baldwin 4-6-0T 'Joan'.


  


 


We publish a bi-monthly magazine, ‘The Mancunian’, which contains interesting and informative articles submitted mainly by members covering a variety of interests such the history of locomotives and lines, current events as well as personal reminiscences of the past. The success of this magazine is reflected by the number of ‘out of town members’ that we have and the lively correspondence it generates.
 
The Society is the proud owner of an extensive and varied collection of books, photographs, and archive material covering locomotives, rolling stock, architecture and signalling. In addition the library has a comprehensive collection of timetables and publications from other societies. All of these are available to members.

If you would like to join then please write (including a S.A.E.) to our Membership Secretary for more information.
