Ian Pope    [Publisher: Lightmoor]    Softback

Chimneys Ltd and its chimneys, Waterloo Colliery, a flying arch in Sodbury cutting, the "Stoneleigh" car marque, a decent sized feature on the Sheffield and South Yorkshire Navigation, building the Chessington branch and a super feature including nice colour shots of the Minera Limeworks. As satisfyingly off beam as ever!

Model Railway Journal 273

Barry Norman    [Publisher: Cygnet Magazines]    Magazine

Barry Norman is in the editorial chair, musing on the tools modellers use, Barry appears to favour a cross between Electronic control and an insecticide with a bad name to run his trains, probably a typo... This issue's layout is "Templefield", a very characterful small layout about which I had previously not heard, featuring a good piece of writing with it too. Then follows Peter Kazer's detailed account of building Corris No. 3 in two different scales. Otherwise known as "Sir Haydn" on the Talyllyn Railway, this was a small Hughes locomotive, similar versions of which were also available in standard gauge flavours, viz "Elephant" in Kent, I digress, but as Peter demonstrates they make very attractive models, especially in the larger scales. Tom Knapp describes the "Paget Chrisian Centre" building on Copenhagen Fields, part two of Karl Crowther's build of the Manning Wardle K kit, searchlight signals on the Eastern from Jas Millham, more work at Farringdon from Stephen Williams, commode handles from Trever Pott, some exquisite models in "Portfolio" and all the usual features besides.

The Weathering Magazine Issue 24 Under New Management

Sergiusz Peczek    [Publisher: Mig Jimenez]    Magazine

This reliably well produced and colourful series happily goes from strength to strength, tackling all sorts of subjects and ideas with wit and intelligence. Aimed at military modellers, the subjects can be a bit "esoteric" for us railway types, although the techniques used are always interesting. This issue is a bit on the military side, but has one feature that makes it worth buying alone, Mig Jiminez himself no less, Germanifying a 1968 built GE Spanish diesel locomotive as used by Volkswagen at their Pamplone plant - just brilliant and and a wonderfully eye catching result too.
