Brush Sulzer no 45014 'THE CHESHIRE REGIMENT' passes through New Mills on the 13th February 1981 with a Manchester Piccadilly to Harwich train.  This locomotive was built at Crewe Works and entered service in December 1961.  Withdrawn on the 10th March 1986, it was cut up later the same year at Vic Berry, Ashbury.

We publish a bi-monthly magazine, ‘The Mancunian’, which contains interesting and informative articles submitted mainly by members covering a variety of interests such the history of locomotives and lines, current events as well as personal reminiscences of the past. The success of this magazine is reflected by the number of ‘out of town members’ that we have and the lively correspondence it generates.
The Society is the proud owner of an extensive and varied collection of books, photographs, and archive material covering locomotives, rolling stock, architecture and signalling. In addition the library has a comprehensive collection of timetables and publications from other societies. All of these are available to members.

If you would like to join then please write (including a S.A.E.) to our Membership Secretary for more information.
