Ron Fitzgerald examines the emergence of the 4-6-0 and Pacific locomotive wheel arrangements in France, the rest of Europe and world-wide.

Graham Sadler shows how to make a set of toolholders for the tool post he described last time.
Martin Evans explains how he surveyed his garden in order to plot the route of his 5 inch gauge garden railway and supplies a few details about the installation of infrastructure.
