A train through time

We are featured in the March 2023 issue of Railways Illustrated with a six page article on the 502. The article was compiled by Martyn Hilbert with assistance from ourselves, and features many stunning photos as well as a history of the unit from the 1940s to the present day.

Picture of Railways Illustrated magazine open to the article about the Class 502. Main picture shows an illustration of the unit in green livery with yellow warning panels, drawn by Jonathan Clay.

Many thanks to Martyn for putting the article together, and to Railways Illustrated for publishing it. Railways Illustrated is available at all good newsagents, or digitally via classicmagazines.co.uk.
