Issue Cover

Model Engineer  |  4537  


Welcome to Model Engineer Issue 4537

The frames and buffer beams come together in the new series describing Halstead, an attractive 2-4-2 passenger tank locomotive. Not quite a ‘step-by-step’ construction series - (Terry assumes that you have made a locomotive before) but a thorough description of the adaptation of pre-existing locomotive designs to create a new outline.

Roger Backhouse visits Tower Bridge and investigates the Armstrong influence - the work of the beautifully preserved hydraulic engine.

The Editor reports on more of the award winning entries at the recent Doncaster Show and features one model from the Guild of Model Wheelwrights on the cover of this issue.

Dr. Michael Ackerman has been considering the conventions of miniature magnetos and gives some thought to a new design.

Mike Haughton had always had a hankering for a powered shaper then one came his way. After some minor restoration he assesses its value as an addition to his workshop.

The late Peter Southworth’s article looks in more detail at the benefits of the Corliss valve to the textile mill engine and reflects on time spent observing Agnes, a Pollit & Wigzell ‘three rod’ engine - a design unique to this manufacturer.

The Index to volume 216 occupies the centre pages this time and Mick Knights brings his article on the construction of ‘Mastiff Plu’ to a close by holding his breath and starting it running. A little time spent solving a couple of teething troubles and it’s away…!
