Latest issue

In the September issue of Railway Modeller, we explore the possibilities for extending a ′finished′ layout or giving it a makeover. The ′Railway of the Month′ is Monksbury by the Cornwall O Gauge Group, a London & South Western Railway branch terminus built as an extension to their existing layout Weatherbury Magna. We revisit a OO gauge layout that has changed its theme three times - originally based on the GWR in Somerset, then changed to Southern Railway territory as Shillinghurst, it has now become Micklethwaite, set in Yorkshire. Also in OO gauge, we return to Alexton, part of which has been rebuilt with water troughs – and Callum Willcox shows you how to recreate this rarely modelled feature of the steam-age railway. We bring you more pictures of the ′Making Tracks II′ layout now set up in Chester Cathedral by Pete Waterman and his Railnuts team, while Robert Kosmider tells us how he modelled a cathedral in 7mm scale. Topping the bill in this month′s reviews is the new OO gauge Deltic diesel from Accurascale.
