Traction

I love to see vintage diesel and electric locomotives from different decades, wish Traction would take me back through the 1960s Green livery and into the 1970s white roof electrics EM2 s to more BR Blue etc.
Would like to also see the days of turntables and gated level crossings with early signal boxes and stations featured too. Love the model railway sections these could also compliment the period featured.
Apt please as well specially as Hornby are releasing a brand new tooled model soon ow and the old 1960s and newly painted HST Blue Pullman comparison
Thank you love the magazine.
