2mm:1ft, 4mm:1ft and 7mm:ft scale layouts in one issue – the perfect balance? We′d like to think so. In this issue, we examine some of the layouts to the west of the country, from Dolgelley (O) based on the North Wales Coast location, to Foxcote Colliery (2FS) with its Somerset & Dorset theme, or Bethesda Sidings (OO) based on Welsh Borders practice. Our varied practical content this month compares signal box options for modellers, advice for getting started making your own track, constructing a DJH 8F kit, adapting Bachmann′s 94XX to make a rare variant, creating a smooth transition between your backscene and layout and adding a retaining wall. Plus, don′t miss our prototype inspiration for creating an Isle of Wight-themed layout, reviews of Heljan′s GWR AEC Railcar and Class 17 for ′O′ and much more!
