The 'Whistler' Magazine

Current issue of The Whistler

For those of you who don’t know Andy Sparks, our new Whistler Magazine Editor, below is a recent picture of him at York Railway Museum. Andy was invited by the NRM to attend at York Museum book signing sessions with his popular new book titled “British Rail Scenes”.  Andy has been asked to produce another book and he is now working on Volume 2 in the series, which will be the 4th book he has produced. We have signed copies of his book in stock, priced at £19.95. We are fortunate to have the skills of Andy available to us to sustain the standard of the Whistler magazine set by former editor Andy Coward. Please keep Andy fed with material for the Whistler magazine, especially with images and articles from yesteryear, giving Andy access to your old photographs will be a big help the Society.
