Latest issue

Eric Londesbrough fights a small signal cabin that dates from the 1980s but manages to produce a lovely little model that would be perfect for any small line. The Editor goes back to his youth with a Saltford Models Simplex diesel and after many years in our hobby, Dave Skertchly finally gets his hands on a Tri-ang “Big-Big” diesel to bash into a steam locomotive.

John Rogers is controlling his locos with a mobile phone via Bluetooth. Kitbuilders will enjoy the second part of Mark Thatcher′s church build and David Rhodes completing a rake of coaches with a modified IP Engineering kit.

Layout inspiration this month comes with a visit to The Aston Railway and Tramway, built by Mick Eastough.

If you feel the need for another locomotive for your line, Steve Blackmore dons his stetson to take a look at Roundhouse Engineering′s latest model and we have all the latest product news for the large scale railway enthusiast.
