Welcome to Traction MagazineIssue #217 now available!
Welcome to the website of TRACTION magazine, which is published nine times a year and caters solely for those interested in the fascinating development of diesel and electric traction on the railways of Britain and mainland Europe.
Within the pages of TRACTION you will find a wide variety of articles written by professional railwaymen, railway historians and enthusiasts. Each issue contains high quality and thought provoking articles. It goes without saying that photographic coverage is of the highest possible quality as this is something that we believe is tremendously important.
Here’s the Editor pursuing two of his interests – watching freight trains in the Swiss Alps and winter walking. Stephen is a keen enthusiast for anything to do with railways, past, present and future, and in any country. He spends a lot of his spare time making models, playing classical piano music and hill walking.
