RAILWAY OF THE MONTH
The glory days of the Great Western, modelled in OO by Roger Bradford in a railway room that has gradually filled with extensions and additions to the layout.
PLAN OF THE MONTH
On from Bridport
Modellers have used the planned but never-built main line which would have run west of Dorchester along the English Channel coast towards Exeter since the 1950s, when John Charman built his Mk.I version of Charford. Alec Fry fell under the spell, and began construction of an OO gauge system, presented here as an ingenious plan suitable for any railway location that appeals.
LNER V2 2-6-2
One of Gresley’s finest designs, these highly capable Prairies are described by W G Ascough; drawings from our Ian Beattie archive, updated by Steve Croucher.
