The 5AT (Class 5 Advanced Technology) steam locomotive was the brainchild of David Wardale, a British railway engineer who, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, made his name and reputation on South African Railways where he modified two locomotives: Class 19D 4-8-2 No 2644 and more famously Class 25 4-8-4 No 3450 which became the sole representative of Class 26, better known as "The Red Devil". In undertaking these modifications, Wardale put into practice the principles of "modern steam" developed by the Argentinean engineer Livio Dante Porta.In the concluding chapter of his iconic book "The Red Devil and Other Tales from the Age of Steam", Wardale speculated on what a "modernised" version of the humble BR Standard Class 5 4-6-0 might have been capable of delivering in terms of power and performance. It was his predictions for the performance of such a locomotive (as transcribed into this publication) that inspired the steam enthusiasts who, in 2002, formed the 5AT Project team.Whilst the 5AT Project ultimately failed in its aim of building a 5AT locomotive, it left an important legacy in the form of a complete set of Fundamental Design Calculations as undertaken by Wardale. These firmly established the remarkable performance that the 5AT would have delivered, and the requirements to be adopted in its detail design.This publication presents those calculations for the guidance of engineers, present and future, seeking to improve the performance, efficiency, reliability and/or economy of steam locomotives of any size and shape.

It was the railway's Titanic. A horrific crash involving five trains in which 230 died and 246 were injured, it remains the worst disaster in the long history of Britain's rail network.The location was the isolated signal box at Quintinshill, on the Anglo-Scottish border near Gretna; the date, 22 May 1915. Amongst the dead and injured were women and children but most of the casualties were Scottish soldiers on their way to fight in the Gallipoli campaign. Territorials setting off for war on a distant battlefield were to die, not in battle, but on home soil victims, it was said, of serious incompetence and a shoddy regard for procedure in the signal box, resulting in two signalmen being sent to prison. Startling new evidence reveals that the failures which led to the disaster were far more complex and wide-reaching than signalling negligence. Using previously undisclosed documents, the authors have been able to access official records from the time and have uncovered ahighly shocking and controversial truth behind what actually happened at Quintinshill and the extraordinary attempts to hide the truth.As featured in Dumfries & Galloway Life magazine, January 2014.

Excerpt: The DRB Class 50 is a German class of 2-10-0 locomotive, built from 1939 as a standard locomotive (Einheitsdampf-lokomotive) for hauling goods trains. It had one leading axle and five coupled axles and was one of the most successful designs produced for the Deutsche Reichsbahn. This class was procured as part of the German Nazi party's preparations for war that led into the Second World War. Up to 1948, 3,164 Class 50 engines were built by almost all the European locomotive factories - towards the end as so-called provisional war locomotives ( bergangskriegslokomotiven) and classified as 50 K. At the end of the steam locomotive era they became virtually a universal class of mixed-traffic steam engine that, thanks to their low axle load could even be employed on branch lines with light track beds. The Deutsche Bundesbahn grouped the locomotives into Classes 050, 051, 052 and 053 from 1968 so that the numbers were computer-compatible. Some of the class were used by the Polish State Railways as type Ty5. 50 1724 at K ln-Gereon (26 May 1990) 1975 stamps of the Class 50 with Wagner smoke deflectors DB No. 050 915-8 on a Hof-Marktredwitz passenger train, Easter 1972In spite of wartime losses, a large number of engines still remained in 1945. No less than 2,159 working locomotives were taken over by the Deutsche Bundesbahn alone and, for a long time, they formed the backbone of goods traffic operations together with the DRG Class 44.
