Railway Modeller December issue.
Sir Rod Stewart
The rock legend talks to RM Editor Steve Flint and Features Writer Craig Tiley about his love of modelling, and his extensive layout which is housed in his Los Angeles home. Don't miss it!
A wayside station on the line from Bridlington to Hull, modelled in O gauge. The layout will be making its exhibition debut at the Warley National Model Railway Exhibition at the NEC on 23 & 24 November.

The last two of the Irish system's railcars saw an extended period of operation in the Isle of Man after the CDRJC closed 60 years ago. Drawings from our Ian Beattie archive.
