Modern Railways

I find the current UK rail news and comment sections most interesting, particularly ‘Informed Sources’ and ‘Pan Up’, both of which make the magazine a must have each month. I really appreciate how both Roger and Ian bring their knowledge and experience into their articles, but always with the ability to point out where policies and decisions are quite often, seriously flawed, making their articles very informative and enjoyable to read, all laced with intelligent humour as required. I often wish our politicians could display similar clarity of thought and intelligence! Reviewed Thursday, September 24, 2020

My only complaint is a lack of diversity in the editorial staff. Please do not misunderstand, this is no criticism of the individual writers but it does lead to a narrower collective viewpoint than might otherwise be the case Reviewed Tuesday, July 28, 2020

I'm a rail traveller rather than a rail professional but I still enjoy it. I would value more international coverage and some rail travel stories - we have plenty! This might extend your audience. Reviewed Friday, July 24, 2020
