Nigel Harris introduces the latest Model Rail programme from the English end of the Channel Tunnel. This programme is packed with prototype and archive views, a close look at two superb ’00’ gauge layouts and a wealth of practical modelling advice. Includes:
Dave Shakespeare’s ever popular layout has now been extensively rebuilt after a serious invasion of woodworm.
Chris Leigh demonstrates how to install a Hornby Skaledale cottage on your layout and add extra scenic details to improve it.
Dartmouth for Kingswear
Peter Midwinter’s ’00’ gauge layout, based on Western Region operations in South Devon in the 1960s. Plenty of steam and diesel hydraulic action.
Live Steam in the Garden
Paul Barnard puts Hornby’s amazing ’00’ gauge live steam system through its paces on a garden railway.
A Very Good Shed
Model Rail’s newest recruit, George Dent, shows how to assemble, paint and weather a Townstreet stone cast goods shed.
Our operations section features iron ore traffic past and present, while the steam archive section focuses on the much loved LNER ‘B1’ 4-6-0s.
