RAILWAY MODELLER JULY 2020 Vol.71 No.837
John Brien reveals the layout built by a small enclave of members of the Hull Miniature Railway Society that has a hankering for Southern steam in OO.
PLAN OF THE MONTH
Simon Holtby adjusts the actual railway history of the highlands of Scotland to incorporate the planned but not constructed rail route up the Great Glen, alongside Loch Ness. This layout suggestion (for N gauge) is based on the supposed divergence of the line to Kyle of Lochalsh from the Inverness – Fort Augustus main lines.
An outwardly ‘standard’ Great Western structure on the banks of the River Tamar, adapted for Cornish commuter demand. Drawn and described by John Treays.

INSIDE THIS ISSUE
Project of the Month
A YJB Rail Crane – scratchbuilt with the aid of photographs and estimated dimensions in OO gauge by Stewart Haworth.
Wartime steam on the Isle of Wight, in 7mm scale and constructed by Kevin & Judy Cartwright. The layout showcases the lesser-known of the town’s two stations.
New product reviews
Latest Sutton’s Locomotive Works Class 24s in 4mm, Rails/Dapol Terrier in OO, Hatton’s Gresley A4 in O and Fourdees Leek & Manifold 2-6-4T in OO9.
Chris Hopper encourages those thinking of moving up to O gauge to do so, using his Birmingham area-inspired small-space layout to assist.
In the news
