Modern Railways

Modern Railways is a British monthly magazine covering the rail transport industry, published by Ian Allan until March 2012, Key Publishing since then. It has been published since 1962, it has always been targeted at both railway professionals and serious amateurs, an aim which derives from its origins as an amalgamation of the enthusiast magazine Trains Illustrated and the industry journal The Locomotive in the hands of its first editor Geoffrey Freeman Allen. It is edited by James Abbott. Regular contributors include Ian Walmsley, Alan Williams and Tony Miles; the large section written by Roger Ford is called ‘Informed Sources’. That by Ian Walmsley is called ‘Pan Up’; the first edition of Modern Railways was published in January 1962 as Volume XV, no. 160 in a sequence continuing from Trains Illustrated. It featured a preface letter from Dr Richard Beeching Chairman of the British Transport Commission, who wrote: "The thousands who read your journal every month derive from it a great deal of pleasure and useful information about the activities of British Railways.

I feel that we share common ground, for your readers are our friends as well as yours, we are helped by your success in holding and enlarging their interest. In particular we have come to expect from you, to value, the kind of well-informed comment on our affairs, the mark of a lively and competent magazine. Like the railways, Trains Illustrated is now moving towards a new era and I think it wholly appropriate that you should choose Modern Railways as your new title. What is a new name for you is an eagerly-sought objective for us. May we both go forward to new and rewarding success." A feature article in the edition analysed peak traffic operations at Reading railway station in the days leading up to Christmas 1960, stating: "Reading…has neither a desperate shortage of platforms nor a crippling complication of layout…" List of rail transport-related periodicals Joyce, Antony.

Old Barracks Museum

The Old Barracks Museum known as Old Barracks, in Trenton, Mercer County, New Jersey, United States, is the only remaining colonial barracks in New Jersey. It is the last of five such barracks authorized by the colonial legislature in 1758 to house soldiers in the French and Indian War, it housed about 300 soldiers at a time. During the American Revolution, George Washington crossed the Delaware River to catch the Hessian garrison in Trenton by surprise. Following the American Revolution, the Trenton Barracks were used as a military hospital specializing in smallpox inoculations. In 1902, members of the Daughters of the Revolution bought part of the building to preserve it; the state bought the other part and formed a museum in 1914 which continues to be open and supported by the State of New Jersey. The Museum is open to visitors year round, Monday - Saturday, is known for the annual Battle of Trenton Reenactments on the Saturday following Christmas.
