BRITAIN'S LEADING HISTORICAL RAILWAY JOURNAL

Sample Issue - January 2008 Journal

This edition of BackTrack has been made available for downloading.  Each article and feature has been made into a PDF file which can be downloaded and viewed in Adobe Reader.  If you do not have Reader see below for how to obtain it.

In order to reduce the download times the resolution of the pictures have been reduced, this reduces the quality of the photgraphs compared with the paper copy of the journal.

Even with these reductions the sizes of several of the files are large.  On a 2Mgbps broadband link it typically takes 10-20 seconds for many of the articles to download before the first page displays. For dial up links it may take several minutes.

This sample shows the type, range and quality of the articles which appear in the magazine each month.  This is typical of the monthly journal but this particular issue is out of stock.  In the magazine some of the articles cover several pages and the titles span two pages.

You can either load an individual article or the whole journal.
