Issue Cover

Model Engineer  |  4676  


In this issue, three model engineers from ‘down under’ rise to the challenge of making the best injector. Peter Seymour-Howell adds various ‘blobs and gadgets’ to the frames of his 5 inch gauge Flying Scotsman, including the expansion link brackets and the front bogie mudguards. Nick Feast finds that small milling machines from the Far East are more than adequate for light work and represent good value for money. Doug Hewson explains the ins and outs of firing and driving a small locomotive and explains what to expect if attending one of the driver training courses at Gilling. Luis Trincao explains that working in 3D is rather different than the usual way of doing things but that the possibilities opened up by doing so are well worth the effort involved. Robert Hobbs restores a 3½ inch gauge LNER ‘Prairie’ locomotive. Roger Backhouse reviews Timm Hiller-Graves’s book on locomotive designer Edward Thompson and also looks at the life of multi-talented engineer and artist James Nasmyth. Adrian Garner carries out a first trial of the time train on his astronomical bracket clock and starts work on the sidereal train. John Arrowsmith visits the Echills Wood Railway near Tamworth, scene of this year’s standard gauge rally.

Model Engineer

It is a good magazine. I am old so not to interested in the modern cad/cam. Did the Cad for a living as a manager. I am interested in the old ways of doing model engineering. My dad was into making small 3.5" gauge locos. So I am versed in his ways. As he said you make the side plates with a hack saw, file, surface table & bench drill. No need to mill out anything. What milling you do can be done on the Lathe with a large vertical slide. Bit different to what I see. You need more to teach filing skills much more. Keeps this a cheaper hoby.
