RAILWAY MODELLER September 2023 Vol.74 No.875
RAILWAY OF THE MONTH
A passion for the Western diesel-hydraulics and memories of the 1970s BR blue era led Barry Platt to create this fictional West Midlands station, with an emphasis on entertaining the public at exhibitions..
PROJECT OF THE MONTH
A Peppercorn K1 in N
With no ready-to-run model of these Eastern Region Moguls in 2mm scale, Ian Cairns set about creating his own from a 3D-printed body and proprietary locomotive and tender chassis.
INSIDE THIS ISSUE
A need for an indoor hobby led John Mellows to revive his childhood passion for model railways with this extensive 00 gauge system, equipped for digital control.
Requiem for Penyffryd Station
A final tribute to Richard Holder's North Wales layout in 009, which was inspired by the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways but has now been dismantled for a house move, with its replacement under construction.
West End Drift
The commissioning of ready-to-lay EM gauge points from PECO, and the launch of the EM Gauge Society 'Chairman's Challenge', prompted Graham Hudson to create this drift mine cameo, set in the North East.
Originally built by Trevor Gibson, this fictional Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway branch terminus in 7mm scale will return to the Guildex show this September after an absence of 23 years.
Graham Ryder recounts how this double-track main line system, set on the Southern Region in the 1960s and equipped for digital operation, grew considerably from the plan that was originally devised.
David Malton describes this small narrow gauge diesel locomotive which formerly ran on the now-closed Abbey Light Railway in Yorkshire, with accompanying drawings at 7mm scale.
