Midland Times joins the stable of existing Times series volumes covering the GWR and SR including their respective constituents and following on into the British Railways regions.

    This is a great addition to the “Times” stable with interesting, well thought out and researched articles. The look and feel is also a cut above the rest with a great use of design and and an eye-catching typeface. Looking forward to the second issue

    A good first issue with some fine photographs, such as of the Fell Locomotive. I applaud the long form of article although I did think the typeface was unnecessarily large leaving a lot of “white space” and suggesting as shortage of material.
