INSIDE THIS ISSUE
Project of the Month
Creating Crioch – 1: design considerations to be taken into account when planning a small layout are explored by Peter Fletcher using his Highland mini-layout in EM as an example..
Chris Burnage describes the first layout he built for himself, representing a modern urban scene in OO gauge, with a little help from his friends.
The lead review item this month is the OO gauge Class 87 electric from Hornby.
Lifelong Lynton & Barnstaple modeller Bob Barnard built this encased scene of the line’s landmark viaduct in OO9 as an L&B Trust flagwaver at exhibitions.
