Narrow Gauge World 110


Recommended Posts

Greetings all

 

Narrow Gauge World issue 110 is in the shops from today, and the first important point is that we've changed the design of the cover - the pic here shows you what to look for.

 

Modelling content in this issue includes a review of the Minitrains HOe Baldwin 2-6-2T tank, a neat little model. Staying with wartime subject matter Phil Parker describes the creation of his suitably-themed 'Owen's Bridge', which includes a particularly nice scratchbuilt lifting bridge. Then as a complete change Phil builds, and adds to, a GN-15 Smallbrook Studios resin kit of the Far Tottering & Oyster Creek Railway locomotive 'Nellie' inspired by the works of cartoonist Roland Emett.

 

In the world of one-to-one scale there's the usual wide-ranging coverage. Dave Billmore continues his story of the pioneer Brockham museum with fascinating pics from the museum's heyday in the late 1970s. Mark Smithers begins a two-part study of those most seminal of narrow gauge locos, the quarry Hunslet. We hear about plans for electrification on the Austrian Zillertalbahn, and David Mitchell recalls travelling behind wood-burning Garratts at night in Angola.

 

There's much more too, including our in-depth news coverage, headed this time by the shock developments on the Isle of Man that could see the end of the Horse Tramway. And as the heritage lines start opening for the new season, our diary tells you exactly when you can find them in action.

 

Hope you enjoy the latest issue, and if there's something you'd like to see in Narrow Gauge World, please let us know.
