40030 heads south through Levenshulme with an express to London Euston on November 19th 1978.  This was a Sunday and the overhead lines were switched off to enable maintenance to be carried out.  Electric loco 86239 is in tow and will take over hauling the train later.

About the Society

We publish a bi-monthly magazine, 'The Mancunian' which contains interesting and informative articles submitted mainly by members covering a variety of interests such as the history of locomotives  and lines, current events as well as personal reminiscences of the past.  The success of this magazine is reflected by the number of 'out of town members' that we have and the lively correspondence it generates.

The Society is the proud owner of an extensive and varied collection of books, photographs, and archive material covering locomotives, rolling stock, architecture and signalling. In addition the library has a comprehensive collection of timetables and publications from other societies. All of these are available to members.

If you would like to join then please write (including a S.A.E.) to our Membership Secretary for more information.
