The December issue of Railway Modeller spans over 100 years of railway history beginning with a model set on the lonely heights of the North Yorkshire Moors in late Victorian times and ending with a superb N gauge layout depicting late BR diesel operations in the 1980s. In between those dates, newcomer Ian Smith shows us around his amazing BR Western region room filling OO gauge line, whilst in contrast to main line operations, Mick Payne describes how he developed the locomotive stock on his East Derbyshire Mineral Railway. Construction features include a method for making lightweight portable baseboards and a quick guide to applying static grass. There′s an exclusive interview with the builder of the Britain′s biggest model railway, Simon George, as he prepares to embark on his countrywide tour starting in Wakefield. In the reviews section the brand new Kato/Peco model of the Small England 0-4-0 is reviewed just prior to its arrival in the shops.
