RAILWAY OF THE MONTH 
Hemyock 
Latterly kept alive by milk traffic, the terminus of the Culm Valley Light Railway in mid-Devon has been modelled in 4mm scale by Chris Lamacraft.

PLAN OF THE MONTH
Coalville Crossing
A freight-orientated Midlands scheme employing two decks, recreating the heavy coal traffic which flowed through this unprepossessing Leicestershire town. It was designed by Ian Stock in his preferred N gauge.

SCALE DRAWINGS
An NER-style elevated signal box
The North Eastern Railway built distinctive over-track signal boxes along the Newcastle to Carlisle line, and elements of several (chiefly Wylam) were used to create a 1:148 scale replica, as Peter Brown explains.
