Peter Waterman's next big project!
Pete Waterman and his 'Railnuts' team are to return to Chester Cathedral this summer with a third OO gauge West Coast Main Line layout. Editor Craig Tiley finds out more.
PLAN OF THE MONTH
Banbury & Cheltenham
Tom Kirtley outlines his under-construction O gauge loft layout - a 'retro' system where the emphasis is firmly on operational fun, based on Banbury & Cheltenham in order to run engines from all the big four.
INSIDE THIS ISSUE
Railway Of The Month
Stephen Williams, one of Pendon Museum’s senior modellers, guides us through the story of the new Midland & South Western Junction Railway section of the museum’s famous Vale Scene.
Through the railway room door
Inspired by a number of modelling pioneers including the Rev. Edward Beal, Ken Morris set about encapsulating the steam-era railway scene of this Scottish coastal town in a loft space of 18' x 14'.
Left for Titfield
Callum Willcox builds the new 4mm scale Peco kit for Monkton Combe station building, and adapts it to model the structure as it appeared in the film The Titfield Thunderbolt.
To follow his Settle & Carlisle-inspired layout Mossdale, David Churchill constructed this small shunting layout in N gauge representing a rail-served creamery.
Faced with the challenge of getting his O gauge 1970s shunting yard into a space just 12' long, Steve Farmer adapted the track plan from a previous N gauge micro layout.
