Backtrack Magazine

12 issues per year View Reviews   |   Write Review From €4,25 per issue 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.
