So, who has downloaded the issue yet? Let us know if you have a layout favourite inside... are you tempted to build a military-themed layout? If so, would it be based upon fact, or fiction?

I especially enjoyed the articles on Slater's and Falmouth. This is where mags can deliver something that web forums can't.

Falmouth Dockyard had some unusual internal user wagons, including quite early North Eastern Rly ballast wagons! https://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/falmouthdocks

Not wishing to sound pedantic could I just point out that in the article on Falmouth Dock, in several places the positioning of ships has been referred to as birthing.  Birthing is what midwives do for a living.  Moving ships into dock is berthing.

I thought the article on Slaters and the associated interview with David White were excellent in that they were well written and informative yet left me wanting to know more. Reminiscent of the MRJ interviews of personalities in the modelling trade of some years ago.

Nice to see Amiens popping up. It really is a nice layout and the article really does do it justice.

Surely moving a ship into a dock is docking whereas coming alongside is berthing?   In many respects the two tems are interchangeable but when a ship is moved into a dry dock thenfrom everything I have ever seen or heard that is referred to as docking (because the ship is being dry docked and is not being berthed).

Not pedantic at all............

 

Thanks for pointing this out. My apologies for not intercepting this at the proofing stage (though I didn't see the finished pages).

Excellent issue this month.  Plenty of old favorites for D-Day celebrations plus a new one (Remagen) I’ve never seen before.  Particularly loved the picture at the bottom of page 52 - it just looked so neat and very realistic for N gauge  - remarkable.  The Kibri crane build was brilliant -  looks like a great model to have a go at.  What a shame about that D-Day diorama going missing at Hornby!  Those numpties that took over a few years ago - the ones that also threw out all those kit moulds - just didn’t have a clue about the hobby.  What a shame - just imagine how many kids were inspired by that layout down the years on a visit to Margate.

 

Month in and month out, BRM just keeps giving.  Well done the team.
