Publications

Publications are the lifeblood of the Society and the means by which we record and disseminate the story of the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway and keep members informed about Society events and much more.

Our quarterly 24-page full colour magazine not only has details of current happenings in the Society but has regular features on modelling the LYR, preservation news, and details about what's happening today on former L&Y lines. Go to the Magazine link to see a sample issue.

The Society's journal, LYR FOCUS, is generally published three times a year and contains a fascinating mix of articles on all aspects of the L&Y's history. We are blessed with a number of exceptional authors producing high quality articles from original research. Go to the Journal link to see a sample issue.

From time to time an issue of LYR FOCUS is replaced by a special edition book issued free to members and available for general sale through our shopping pages. Go to the Books link for full details of what's available.

Many backnumbers of magazine and LYR FOCUS are available - go to the Backnumbers link for details of how to obtain copies or to the Journal Index link to find articles of interest.
