BackTrack Britain’s leading historical railway monthly. BackTrack was founded in August 1986 with the aim of presenting “quality, well-researched articles on British railway history”. From the outset there has been strong emphasis on the use of colour. The magazine has been described as “packed full of solid information, written by people who know their business, and totally devoid of rose-tinted waffle.”
