Old Glory is Britain’s best-selling magazine for steam and vintage machinery enthusiasts. Its blend of news, rally reports, exclusive features and archive material has provided inspiration for new restoration projects as well as giving readers a rare look at some old favourites.
Among the many and varied subjects covered are steam traction engines, mechanical organs, mill engines, steam ships, locomotives, veteran cars and scale models. Photographs and carefully reproduced documents from the Old Glory archive offer a nostalgic look back at steam’s golden age and there’s lively reader interaction in the letters and helpline columns.
Steam cars, a Dorset double, steam on the water and Versatile (by name and nature) agricultural tractors – there’s plenty to enjoy in the October issue of Old Glory.
We’ve a round-up of just some of the fun and excitement from the Great Dorset Steam Fair, including a breath-taking shot after dark, and details of the trophy winners.
For those who prefer their steam with a little less grunt, we’ve a report of the Steam Car Club of Great Britain on its annual Cotswolds Tour, with images of these elegant motors being driven through delightful villages with superb stone houses as a backdrop.
We pay a visit to Shipley Glen in West Yorkshire for a trip on the woodland cable tram, and head even further north for a day out at Grampian Transport Museum.
With news, views, features and diary dates – plus the chance to receive a superb 2017 vintage steam calendar if you take out a subscription to Old Glory – there’s an awful lot to get steamed up about!
