Latest issue

Does building a garden railway take a long time? Our Editor set out to build a working layout, complete with plants, in a day for the National Garden Railway Show. See how he got on, and enjoy highlights from the event too.



On the workbench this month, we have a battery-electric Bagnall, classic Penrhyn railway brake van, convert an LGB loco to battery power and a stone engine house. If you fancy some technology, how about using a computer to generate freight movements for your line? Or if steam is your thing, we take a look at Roundhouse Engineerings′[ Darjeeling Himalayan Railway loco.



All this plus the latest news for garden railway fans in our August issue.
