Issue Cover

Garden Rail  |  Jul 2020  

Lockdown is the perfect time to dig those old kits out of the cupboard and get them on the workbench.
Eric Londesbrough fights a small signal cabin that dates from the 1980s but manages to produce a lovely little model that would be perfect for any small line. The Editor goes back to his youth with a Saltford Models Simplex diesel, and after many years in our hobby, Dave Skertchly finally gets his hands on a Tri-ang “Big-Big” diesel to bash into a steam locomotive.
We're not just looking back, though – John Rogers is controlling his locos with a mobile phone via Bluetooth. Kit builders will enjoy the second part of Mark Thatcher's church build and David Rhodes completing a rake of coaches with a modified IP Engineering kit.
Layout inspiration this month comes with a visit to The Aston Railway and Tramway, built by Mick Eastough. It might have taken 50 years to get started, but the wait was worth it as his lovely 7/8th scale line is full of narrow gauge character.
If you feel the need for another locomotive for your line, Steve Blackmore dons his Stetson to take a look at Roundhouse Engineering's latest model, and we have all the latest product news for the large scale railway enthusiast.
