18100, a prototype main line gas turbine-electric locomotive built for British Railways in 1951 by Metropolitan Vickers of Manchester. It is pictured here in 1958 at East Didsbury after conversion to a prototype 25kv AC electric locomotive. As an electric loco it was re-numbered to E1000 (E2001 from 1959). It became a Class 80 in the TOPS list.
We publish a bi-monthly magazine, ‘The Mancunian’, which contains interesting and informative articles submitted mainly by members covering a variety of interests such 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.
