RM AUGUST 2019 ISSUE Vol.70 No.826
The Brockhampton & Umbridge Railway
Peter Butler built this outdoor railway in SM-32, taking the premise of a revived Welsh slate system, reborn as a preservation scheme, as its inspiration.
PLAN OF THE MONTH
With the imminent arrival of the diminutive new Ruston & Hornsby 48DS in OO gauge from Hornby, Neil Rushby presents a layout suggestion tailor-made for it: an imaginary Scottish island, with distillery, connected via a train ferry to the outside world.
Ruston & Hornsby 48DS
Tim Rayner provides some background on the class intended for the Whisky Galore plan; scale drawings by Bob Phelps are reproduced to 7mm scale.
