RM AUGUST 2018 ISSUE Vol.69 No.814
RAILWAY OF THE MONTH
Meadowlands Light Railway
By tradition, the Railway of the Month for August is an outdoor line: this month, John & Sue Cooke share with us their SM-32 system, the Meadowlands Light Railway, which runs around the garden at their home.
PLAN OF THE MONTH
The current northern terminus of the Dean Forest Railway is Parkend which James Hilton suggests would make a good layout for OO gauge, as he depicts with his own illustrations.
Hull & Barnsley coaches
This month the focus is on the four-wheel coaching stock of the Hull & Barnsley Railway, with drawings to 4mm scale of the five-compartment all third and three-compartment brake third, both representing stock built in the 1880s.
