RM FEBRUARY 2019 ISSUE Vol.70 No.820
RAILWAY OF THE MONTH
Catesby and Dent
David Bates’ room-filling OO gauge layout is on two levels, celebrating the Great Central on the lower level, and the Settle & Carlisle on the upper.
PLAN OF THE MONTH
Famously, the county town of Rutland’s signal box was Airfix’s muse in the 1960s. The box is still operational, with a mix of semaphore and colour light signals.
Victor Hall shows how a modern-day replica of the site can be achieved, and details a typical day’s mix of passenger and freight workings.
Wrington Vale station building
This small offshoot from the Cheddar Valley branch had some distinctive structures. Steve Croucher presents some updated drawings; notes by Steve Flint.
INSIDE THIS ISSUE
Project of the Month
Fish traffic for Dentdale – for his continuing LMS-period Settle & Carlisle project in OO, Ian Nuttall amassed a collection of many diverse fish vans, to represent this once-massive freight flow.
Chris Gardner built this 4mm scale recreation of the last station to be opened on the Isle of Wight’s railway network – and the first to be closed.
The lead review item this month is the museum-quality Lee Marsh Model Co GWR Dean Goods in 7mm scale.
Although rail activity through this Northamptonshire town ceased in the 1960s, John Norton, Richard Coleman and George Woodcock imagined a 1970s continuation in OO.
In the news
No fewer than 11 pages this month, with the Hornby 2019 programme listed (including its tiny OO model of the Ruston & Hornsby 48DS), the completion of our Warley coverage, and much more besides.
The Great Model Railway Challenge
Karl Stevens of the Aberdeen MRC describes how they prepared a heat-winning OO gauge layout for episode five of The Great Model Railway Challenge.
