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.
In addition to a free Sentinels of Shrewsbury DVD, the August issue of Old Glory has plenty of memories, photographs and news stories to share. A 1918 Wallis makes its rally debut nearly 100 years after it was built; a driver recounts his memories of Lucy, the youngest-surviving Wallis ‘Advance’ in the UK; and there’s a look at Leyland’s eight-wheeler, the Octopus. Also featured: 140th anniversary of the Tyne Swing Bridge; a look ahead to National Mills Weekend; a journey round Oxford Bus Museum; the restoration of Aveling & Porter KND-type tractor no 9170 of 1920 Shamrock; OG in Mini News, and much more.
