Quite nice layouts but serious overkill on the 4mm this month. One 7mm article and nothing at all for N gauge. :(

Still, my N gauge Journal arrived today so I will get my fix there.

Is that article any good? The one in Model Rail last year (or was it the year before) had great photos of how to make it, but nothing on how to wire it... which is surely the trickiest part of the whole process.

Off topic - but in answer to the previous post - feed through the runners - simple and easy!

Indeed, my traverser runs on heavy duty drawer runners from screwfix. They are all metal in construction so I have just fed the layout bus wires through two of them. they didn't take solder easily so I have had to clamp the wires to them.

Hornby mag seems to have cornered all the N gauge this month with a couple of super layouts. ;)

Gents, if I can use this topic to make a suggestion - can we include the name of the mag in the title of the OP for each issue please, not just the month or issue? I appreciate it's in its own area, but when viewing the whole board index, it's not otherwise obvious which mag is being discussed.

Thanks.

Yes it is quite a good article. Shows two different methods of wiring, one uses the alignment pin to power the connected track. Don't take Model Rail so can't make a comparison.

I have to say that the layouts were stunning again this month. Another subscription renewed.

Nobody here seems to have mentioned it, but I thought the way Crispin Denny wrote the obituary of his father was outstanding.

I read it in Smiths - I'd gone there to see if the March Continental Modeller was in yet as I have an article in it- and found the piece written from the point of view of the directors of the railway rather moving. I hope they're successfull in preserving the layout in situ as it must have been one of the most influential post war layouts. I assume the idea is to turn the house into some kind of museum.
