Xx Reviewed 20 January 2021

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 24 September 2020

Modern Railways

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 28 July 2020
