A station on the Great Western main line in the Welsh Marches in OO, with the Glyn Valley Tramway as a bonus, as Stephen Weatherley reveals.

The merits of club membership
Ryan Gray praises the assistance that fellow members of the Cupar & District MRC gave him in the construction of an OO diesel depot, Eden Road TMD.
Maldon East station
Still extant at the time of writing, but no longer in railway use, this elegant Great Eastern constituent structure was surveyed by Christopher Palmer in the 1970s. He presents the plans, to 2mm scale, in this issue.

Moving on from the train set
Sound advice for that all-important step along the road from the introductory package, in this first part of a trilogy from Chris Ford on a project layout in OO.
The last days of steam in 1960s Lancashire – grimy Black Fives on blue & grey stock and all – captured on this OO layout by Mark Towers.
New product reviews
The lead review item this month is the newly-tooled LNER J72 in OO from Bachmann.
For his first N gauge layout that reflects a rural location, Steve Farmer ventured into the Fenland flatlands for inspiration; this 1970s/1980s layout is the result.
