Latest issue

In the February edition of Railway Modeller, we reveal Hornby′s plans for its 2023 model range, and bring you the award-winning layouts from the recent Warley National Model Railway Exhibition. Railway of the Month is Newton Heath Works – a 7mm scale layout based on the lines serving the ball clay industry on the Isle of Purbeck. ′Might-have-been′ layouts are a recurring theme this issue, with George Woodcock′s OO gauge Ballachulish imagining how this well-known Scottish Highlands branch line could have looked in the late 1980s, had it not closed two decades before. Meanwhile, with his extensive N gauge layout The Northampton Extension, Dan Hull shows what might have happened if the late Victorian ambitions of the Great Central Railway had been fully realised. Modelmaking articles include the construction of Marylebone train shed and a Scottish mill building (both in 4mm scale); while new product reviews include the Class 92 electric locomotive from Accurascale and the Liverpool & Manchester Railway centenary train pack from Hornby, with the famous 0-4-2 Lion.
