S W "Steve" Stevens-Stratten

We are sad to report that we have been informed of his passing, peacefully on 16th July at aged 91 years. Steve was well known as Editor of the Model Railway Constructor magazine from 1966 to 1983 when he became founding Editor of Vintage Roadscene, both published by Ian Allan Ltd.
I fondly remember his encouragement of my early modelling efforts when I was a teenager and we were both members of the Wimbledon MRC.

His daughter invites those local enough to attend to his funeral at Randalls Park Crematorium, Leatherhead, Surrey at 4.15 pm on Friday 31st July. All would be welcome. Only family flowers please, details for donations, if felt appropriate, from Alan Greenwood, Funeral Directors, 425 Kingston Road, Ewell, Surrey, KT19 0BT, telephone 020 8786 7476.
