INSIDE THIS ISSUE
Project of the Month
Quarry Hunslets for Lechi o Lwyd – Pecorama Exhibition Manager Andrew Beard demonstrates how home-made OO9 freewheeling locos were created for the ‘loft extension’ 4mm scale display.
This O gauge layout is set on a Southern Region secondary main line in the New Forest during late steam days, as John Smith & Rob Cotterell explain.
The headline product this month is the LNER Dynamometer Car, produced in OO exclusively for Rails of Sheffield by Rapido Trains in Canada.
Stuart Riley chose this title for his U-shaped OO gauge layout as main line trains run beneath the townscape at either end. A planned extension is under way.
In the news
Danish manufacturer Heljan has announced a project to replicate the BR Derby/Sulzer Class 25/3 Bo-Bos in OO gauge, and illustrated it with a computer-aided design image.
