Latest issue

To celebrate HM The Queen′s Platinum Jubilee, the June issue of Railway Modeller has two special royal-themed features: we show you how to detail and enhance a Hornby OO gauge model of LMS 4-6-2 No.6201 Princess Elizabeth to represent the locomotive when it hauled the Royal Train in 2012, and we find out what proprietary models are available to recreate other royal workings on the railways. Our Railway of the Month recreates the famous Yelverton to Princetown branch line across Dartmoor in OO gauge, while other layouts include Holm Road Depot (an O gauge diesel depot inspired by 1980s Gloucester), Barhall Junction (an extensive transition-era system in N gauge) and the Strangford & Downpatrick Joint Railway (a ′might-have-been′ Northern Irish network in OO). The Plan of the Month depicts one of BR′s most obscure lines - the Holyhead Breakwater railway - while O gauge diesels are leading the product reviews, in the form of Heljan′s Class 56 and 40, Minerva Model Railways′ Class 14 diesel-hydraulic, and special edition Royal-themed Class 47s from Eisenbahn Canada.
