CM JUNE 2019 Vol 41 No 6
RAILWAY OF THE MONTH
Stephen Davies changed from his customary N to HO in order to experiment with DCC and learned a lot modelling a commuter station in northern Germany.
PLAN OF THE MONTH
Jean-François Perrissoud welcomes us to a small town in the Rocky Mountains which he has modelled in N and now forms the first part of a larger project.
Iain Hunter explains how construction challenges were met to make his Australian HO layout even longer giving a significant increase in storage yard capacity while still being transportable in the same vehicle.
BOOK and VIDEO REVIEWS
INSIDE THIS ISSUE
A forestry line
Inspired by typical operations in eastern Europe, Laurent Vandermotte wanted to capture the atmosphere of forestry railways in the 1950s, such as the Viseu line in Romania and various Polish operations.
Sound for a Gr940
Roberto Macchi evaluates the recent Rivarossi HO model of an Italian 2-8-2T and describes in detail how he fitted a digital sound decoder by Portigliatti.
Time for TT?
Richard Self suggests that it is time to look again at TT, the ‘gauge in the middle’, between HO and N, promoted as ‘the ideal gauge’: small enough to fit in, large enough to have a good level of detail.
Two small cafés
Emmanuel Nouaillier continues his campaign devoted to modelling urban architecture in miniature, here setting the first completed café into a scene.
The headline review item this month is the HO scale ÖBB Rh1041 from Roco.
