The Strange Tale of No. 2

Post by rogerfarnworth »

As part of a batch of magazines from the 1950s and 1960s I picked up a number of editions of ‘Modern Tramway’ from 1963 into 1964. ‘The Modern Tramway’ was the journal of the Light Railway Transport League (LRTL). By 1963 it had dropped the ‘The’ and was published jointly by Ian Allen and the LRTL. Its formal title was ‘Modern Tramway and Light Railway Review’.

The February 1963 edition of the journal was priced at 2s 6d.

Among a number of articles in the journal was a piece by G. Hyde, The Strange Tale of No. 2.

This No. 2 was Beyer Peacock steam tram engine No. 2. It is shown in the featured image in which it is seen at Beyer Peacock’s works in Gorton, Manchester.
