Did Kalmbach ever release the complete series of Iaian Rice's Roque Bluffs within one of their many excellent books? As a magazine feature, it ran from Oct 2003 to mid 2004.

I remember Smudgeloco building a version but that is all I remember.

Thanks guys

Tim

Tim, as far as I recall Iain Rice's Roque Bluffs was only published in the monthly mag. Was done over several months, 6 or 8 if my memory serves...? I have never seen it in book form in any RR model shop over here.

Cheers, Tony

OldNotty of this parish said a while ago (IIRC) that he had obtained the Smudgeloco base boards. He may know more about the publication details of that interesting layout plan.

I think MR might have published the series as one of their downloadable pdfs?

They never did it as a book, no. One of the best layout articles they've done, I think.

I can't remember the proper title but I am sure that it is contained in the downloadable article on Proto 87 Layouts on the MR site.
