RM JULY 2018 ISSUE – Vol.69 NO.813
RAILWAY OF THE MONTH
Latterly kept alive by milk traffic, the terminus of the Culm Valley Light Railway in mid-Devon has been modelled in 4mm scale by Chris Lamacraft.
PLAN OF THE MONTH
A freight-orientated Midlands scheme employing two decks, recreating the heavy coal traffic which flowed through this unprepossessing Leicestershire town. It was designed by Ian Stock in his preferred N gauge.
An NER-style elevated signal box
The North Eastern Railway built distinctive over-track signal boxes along the Newcastle to Carlisle line, and elements of several (chiefly Wylam) were used to create a 1:148 scale replica, as Peter Brown explains.
INSIDE THIS ISSUE
Husband-and-wife co-operation with a layout isn’t rare, but for this OO project by Julie & Tony Peckham things were different: she called the shots!
Wattisham & Combs
Mike Chester gives us a guided tour of this N gauge layout set in East Anglia in diesel and electric days, complete with a sugar beet factory scene.
Spirit of Swindon
Part 1: Will Heath introduces his grand retirement project – a representation of the heart of the Great Western Railway in N gauge, and set in the 1960s – with an overview of the layout and some of its buildings.
Ordinarily, operations on Colin Brown’s LNER-period O gauge layout take place at the terminus in his purpose-built railway room, but come the fine weather and portable extensions, an extra fiddle yard and a couple of gazebos come into play.
A 4mm scale Gloucestershire backwater on the banks of the River Severn on the former Midland, modelled in BR steam and diesel days by David Burnett.
This OO gauge micro-layout perches on a shelf above a desk in Humphrey Atkinson’s modelling den; it represents a small harbour somewhere along the English Channel coast in the steam age.
