14 Dec December 2019 media coverage for the Duke
Great coverage for the Duke in both Heritage Railway and Steam Railways this month.
Heritage Railways (issue 262, December 20, 2019 – January 16, 2020) covers the tricky matter of the replacement crank axle that is required for the linkage from the middle cylinder. With the latest edition of the magazine, there’s also a separate booklet, entitled “World’s Fastest Steam Railway”, that includes a great shot of the Duke leaving Kings Cross in 2005.
In the special 500th edition of Steam Railway (December 13, 2019 – January 9, 2020), to celebrate 40 years and 500 issue of the magazine, they present 40 of the preservation movement’s milestone moments. The Impossible Dream weighs in at No. 7. In a separate article by Bob Meanley on the recreation of an LMS streamliner, there’s a great shot of the Duke lined up with several Stanier pacifics in 2005.
