    The Railway Magazine features 'Practice and Performance' - the world's longest running railway column - having first appeared in 1901.

    Contributors have included C. J. Allen, O.S. Nock and Peter Semmens and it is now in the hands of the current RPS president John Heaton and fellow RPS member Keith Farr. Both writers regularly employ information from the RPS database, mileage charts and fastest times sources as well as using the work of other members, with appropriate permission and acknowledgements of course.
