Hornby Magazine  |  November 2013  

John Hancock takes us on tour of this ‘O’ gauge marvel based on Burton-On-Trent in BR steam days, which models a complete railway network.

Tim Shackleton takes his airbrush to a limited edition Dapol ‘OO’ gauge LMS 10001 and shows how early pioneer diesels weathered in service.

In his final Parker’s Guide, Phil Parker rekindles old memories by adding full detailing to a Bachmann ‘3F’ 0-6-0 using a Brassmasters kit.

READY KADEE . .. read more .. GO
In the second part of his new series on Kadee automatic couplings, Nigel Burkin shows how
to fit them and what tools you’ll need.

Geoff Buttler reveals how the distinctive atmosphere of West Yorkshire in the BR blue era has been recreated in ‘N’ gauge to brilliant effect by this four-sided model.

Hornby Magazine’s all-inclusive project continues. This month, we install the electrics and build the
signalbox and platform using the FREE Scalescenes kits. Plus get the code to download the platform kit for this layout for FREE!

Bachmann’s LMS ‘twins’ in ‘OO’ and Golden Age Models ‘Coronation’ carriages impress Hornby Magazine’s reviewers this month alongside a bumper crop of new releases

Although derided by many, the four-wheel ‘Pacer’ DMUs of the 1980s are now at the end of their third decade of service. Evan Green-Hughes looks at the BR/Alexander Class 144.

Realtrack Models has broken new ground with its first motorised model - the Class 144 DMU for ‘OO’ gauge. Plus Evan Green- Hughes charts this history of the class in Reality Check.

3mm scale isn’t a first choice for a model railway, but for Paul Hopkins it is the perfect opportunity to fully engage with the hobby. Redford Junction is the result.  read less
