Funnel 182 – Autumn 2019 


Next Edition Teaser

Funnel 183  Winter 2019

comes out at the beginning of December and will hit your doormat with a mighty ‘thump’ because once again it’s well-stuffed with, er, stuff – most of it about steamboats and the people involved with them.

The Editor wishes all our members and readers a joyous Christmas and a great, steamy, New Year, but if all the partying  and over indulgence becomes too much to bear, head for the rocking chair in a secluded corner and let this busy edition transport you...

While you are drooling in anticipation, you can re-read edition 182 which will download if you click on the picture to the left.

Copy should ideally be sent in Word format. We publish to an 84pp A5 format so simply send straight Word files of the text and pictures as separate (rather than embedded) jpgs.

Photos and scanned drawings should be at 300dpi - i.e. JPGs saved as high quality.  

You can now also submit articles, letters and members' adverts from this website.


Small Adverts for steam related items are printed free of charge to members and on a one-off basis to other individuals at the Editor's discretion. Photos may be included if space permits.
