Riddles designed Standard Class 4 2-6-0 No 76088 passes through the sylvan surroundings of Marple Wharf Junction with a local passenger train.  This Horwich built locomotive entered service in May 1957 and was allocated from new to Trafford Park shed.  After a service life of only ten years she was withdrawn from 6A Chester in June 1967.






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.
