Funnel 180 – Spring 2019 


Funnel 180 is now out!

The 96 page SBA quarterly journal ‘Funnel’ should now have arrived on doorsteps in the UK and around the world.

Published by Hobbs the Printers in Southampton it is mailed direct to members. If yours fails to hit your doormat with a satisfying ‘plump’ have a word or send an email to the SBA’s Hon. Membership Secretary, Mike Cole.

We want our journal to be seen by as wide a constituency of ‘steam minded’ people as possible and considerable efforts are being made to complete the availability of back issues on this website.

In the meantime the new (Spring 2019) edition is here for your perusal.


Contributions should be sent to: Mark Rudall (Honorary Editor)

Copy Deadlines

Spring/March issue:
31 January
Summer/June issue: 30 April
Autumn/September issue: 31 July
Winter/December issue: 31 October

Please submit all material
as early as possible!

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.


For commercial advertisements email

Many items published in Funnel are the personal opinions of the contributor and therefore may not necessarily reflect SBA policy.
