Backtrack Magazine

(3 Customer Reviews)   |     Write Review 12 issues per year Backtrack was first published in 1987 with the aim of presenting British railway history. At first quarterly and then bi-monthly, Backtrack went monthly in 1995 and has gone from strength to strength, justifying its founder’s identification of a niche in the railway publishing market for a high quality historical journal.
Backtrack’s remit is to cover all aspects of railway history throughout Britain and Ireland, from its earliest days in the era of horse-drawn tramroads up to around ten years back from the present. Locomotives (whether steam, diesel or electric) and rolling stock feature prominently, but Backtrack also looks at the history of particular lines as well as considering the social, political, financial, engineering and labour aspects of railway history. Topics such as stations, bridges, signalling, biographies, train services and staff recollections therefore regularly appear in the magazine.
A strong pictorial content is an important feature of Backtrack and in addition to archive black and white photographs each issue contains quality historical colour coverage of the railway scene, all reproduced to the highest standards.

   One of the best in the market Reviewed Dienstag, 30. Januar 2018
Highly entertaining
   Britain's leading historical railway journal Reviewed Dienstag, 2. Januar 2018 SUBSCRIBER
"Britain's leading historical railway journal" is the claim and strapline which appears at the top of the front cover of every issue. As a subscriber who has been "hooked" on the magazine for a decade now, I consider that to be true. Other magazines cover the history of Britain's railways to greater and lesser degrees but I believe that Backtrack does it best.
Each issue contains an eclectic mix of articles covering many and varied aspects of railway history, not just locomotives or line histories and not just steam, such as others concentrate on. Such byways as signalling and ticketing receive attention from time to time and the selection of colour, as well as black-and-white, illustrations is magnificent.
Finally, modern traction and history (up to about a decade ago) get a share of the attention too and particularly interesting are those articles which look at the social history and the political background.
This is the only British historical railway journal with referenced articles.
