Railway & Travel Monthly, 1910 - 1922

Post by RichardCoulthurst » Sat Apr 22, 2017 11:29 am

I am not sure if it has been mentioned previously here but the GER Society (http://www.gersociety.org.uk) has made available DVDs of the full run of "The Railway & Travel Monthly" from 1910 to 1922. Similar in style to "The Railway Magazine", the "Railway & Travel Monthly" offered a wide range of pre-grouping railway information. The two DVDs are fully word-searchable, and cost ?15 plus postage. Full details about ordering can be found on the GERS website. In addition to railways the magazine also covered shipping, road transport and aviation. It changed its name to the "Transport & Travel Monthly" in 1920 but it was absorbed into the "Railway Magazine" in 1923.

Dear Richard,
Thanks for the publicity.

As well as the Railway & Travel Monthly, 1910-1922, the GERS has also digitised the following major historical items:
The Great Eastern Railway Magazine, 1911-1926
The LNER Magazine, 1927-1947
British Railways Magazine, Eastern Region, 1948-1963
Handbooks of the Eastern Region Staff Railway Society, all nine issues
Directors' Reports to Shareholders, 1837-1948 (For the railways of the eastern counties - the ECR, GER and LNER)

together with well over 1000 other individual items, many of which are of general railway interest.
They can be found in the Files Emporium on the GERS website:

There is also a listing of over 2500 photographs, of subjects ranging across all the former LNER area. These are distributed as digital files by email or fast transfer service.
