RM APRIL 2018 ISSUE – VOL.69 NO.810
RAILWAY OF THE MONTH
Three Cumbrian/North Yorkshire branches could have been linked to create another trans-Pennine route, as Peter Osborne shows with this OO layout.
PLAN OF THE MONTH
A City Terminus in OO
Steve Flint demonstrates how an extensive facility, with goods yard, engine servicing and carriage sidings, can be fitted handsomely in a 20' x 9' area.
With the Bachmann 4-4-2s in OO on the horizon, the home-built class of six H2s and the close relatives the five Kitson H1s are described by W G Ascough.
Customising R-T-R Locomotives in OO
Your FREE Shows You How booklet explores how to add extra realism to R-T-R locomotives, including renaming and renumbering, upgrading moulded details, adding crew figures, plus detail painting and weathering techniques.
INSIDE THIS ISSUE
On the Road with Canada Street
Peter Johnson recalls trips out to exhibitions with his highly detailed EM gauge model of a down-at-heel dockside freight yard.
Royd Hall Drift Mine
Collieries are huge installations, especially in O gauge, but the solution Dave Hall adopted was just to model the loading screens - which actually load his wagons.
By way of a sequel to his previous layout, California Levels, David Atkinson moved on to the iron-making industry, retaining his preferred 6mm (or 1:50) scale to allow 9mm track to represent 18
Project of the Month
16T mineral wagons led an unremittingly hard life, but this takes skill and a keen eye to replicate in model form - particularly in O gauge. Gordon Gravett shows how it's done, using a Parkside kit for Arun Quay.
Locomotive Motor Options
Geoff Helliwell looks at the options for those modellers (chiefly in 3mm scale and above) who prefer to make their own locomotives by hand.
No Fixed Location
Peter Wynne built his OO gauge layout behind his railway room door but in the centre of his purpose-built room, not around the sides. It reflects modern times, but nowhere specific to give him carte blanche with stock.
