5 Year Index Now Available

The Back Track Cumulative Index To Volumes 26 to 30 is now available.  In 2012 you rushed to buy the complete 25 year index to volumes 1 to 25.  But that was five years ago - what has been in BackTrack since then. You need the new supplementary index for volumes 26 to 30 inclusive covering the years 2012 to 2016.

Cross-referenced under, over 60 sub-headings on eight pages of entries, this will help to point you towards that article you remember but can't find.  To order your copy go to the Back Issues/ Binders page.

Backtrack Cumulative Index to first 25 years

To mark Backtrack's first quarter of a century of publication, we have produced an edition of our comprehensive subject index, including the original Introductory Issue of 1986 and the LMS and LNER Specials of 1998 and 2001 respectively.

Subjects are listed alphabetically under subject headings, many appearing under more than one heading according to the extent of the subject covered.

The 25-Year Index is 24 pages containing over 7,500 entries, with new subject headings and more cross-references.
