British Railway Modelling

I am an older person and therefore do not always enjoy the electronics and gadgetry but aside from that, I find the mag is useful and has quite interesting articles. The photos are often inspiring whilst the articles on buildind items can be most illuminating. I have taken out an electronic subscription because being in Australia, at least I get the news when it is news. Reviewed Friday, May 29, 2020
