RAILWAY OF THE MONTH
Süd Harz Eisenbahn
Modern metre gauge might-have-been: Paul Steedman has created a modular HOm layout, imagining that a former part of the Harz network has been re-opened.
PLAN OF THE MONTH
A Swedish odyssey: Charles Insley has created a layout in HOe that is easy to transport and a pleasure to exhibit. It will be at Expo Narrow Gauge on 26th October.
Gare de Brindille
Chris Hopper has built a small layout in a large scale, depicting the War Department Light Railways in SM32 with an impressive level of carefully observed fine detail.
BOOK and VIDEO REVIEWS
INSIDE THIS ISSUE
Exclusively freight working: Guy van Meroye reports that Hans Baeck of MSC Het Spoor has a new Belgian HO layout that is easier to transport and assemble.
Inspired by the ‘High Line’ above the Animas River, Bob Wright continues his quest to capture the atmosphere of the Colorado narrow gauge in On30.
My Final Layout
All good things must come to an end: Brian Lovett reflects on what will be the last layout he builds, an American HO scene which hosts his working models of a large dockside crane and a rotary wagon tippler.
Electrified operations along the eastern seaboard: Elmar Haug and Thomas Tschur have modelled in HO a comparatively unusual aspect of American railroads.
Soiuth African style Pacific
Warren Miller shows how he created a plausible Pacific for HO in the style of the South African Railways 16E.
SJ X2 power car
Nigel Hurst shows how he explored the possibilities of 3D-printing and created a 1:45 scale model of one of the power cars used on the Swedish tilt trains.
The headline review item this month is the new Piko TT scale model of the Russian-built TGK2 shunter as found in the USSR and eastern Europe.
