My subscription copy arrived on 13th July I said in my original thread of 14th July, now locked, and I now quote my comments "a quick skip through shows that there is lots of informative reading to be had. 


The article on Pete Waterman's Making Tracks layout that is on display in Chester Cathedral until 3rd September looks very interesting. However, on looking at the Cathedral website I noticed that the event is not free as it says in the article. Tickets cost £2.50 which is a lot less than I hope most of us would give as a donation. Now all I have to do is plan a day trip so I can attend a service and spend time viewing both the Cathedral and the layout. My birthday at the end of this month is looking good for such a day trip."


@AY Mod has confirmed that the cathedral changed their minds on the charges after BRM went to the printers.

I hope I'm no going to offend anyone by sending the attached photo of fiddle yard action....

I wish my fiddle yard bore the smallest similarity to this, with multiple full length trains on the same line.

Impressive watching full length trains appearing from the distance.

There was one steam excursion in the set (fairly obviously with the date represented).

Whole family of 5 (not all enthusiasts enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere on the "customer side.

There is  disabled parking close by if you google it - 4 hours free - with blue badge and time disk of course.

Pleased to find a small Chester Models stand at the end of the layout but the main shop which is comprehensive is 5 mins away. (No connection except as a new customer)

Edit to correct grammar, spelling....
