The Trust publishes a quarterly magazine, Chime, for members.
This started as a newsletter in the 1960s and today the magazine features the
latest news of our locomotive along with technical articles, features,
pictures, railtour reports and members' correspondence.
In addition to Melvin Haigh's excellent series of articles on
boilers, tenders and A4 names Chime has featured articles on:
