Garden Rail covers all aspects of outdoor model railways. It is aimed at established converts to the hobby, as well as those yet to desert their indoor layouts and discover the real potential of large-scale modelling in an outdoor setting. The magazine is a monthly publication.
Garden railways aren′t just for the well-heeled modeller - if you are working on a budget then this is still the perfect hobby.
We start with a trip to the Treweek Siding built by Sean Cullen. This isn′t a posh railway, far from it. Sean has used some unusual materials to give his model the feel of a less glamorous Welsh narrow gauge railway struggling to keep going and it looks great.
Practically, we feature a stunning viaduct made from building materials and Plastikard. The result could grace any garden. Staying with buildings, how about a water tower based on a sweetcorn can? Or an amazing kit-built Gauge 3 signal box that Brunel would be proud of.
If your lineside needs road vehicles, Dave Skertchly provides plans and instructions for a 1920s delivery van that can be made out of plywood. Of course, we all love a steam engine and Goeff Loynes takes a look at Accucraft′s "Dolgoch". All this plus the latest product news and vibrant letters page.
