Recommended Posts

*WOR TV for BRM print subscribers and digital edition readers only. Digital edition includes 17 bonus images, seven extra videos and three additional articles.

 

Welcome all to our final issue for 2021, bringing a close to another unusual year of exceptional circumstances, but one that has seen our hobby flourish.

This time, we delve into the origins of a little blue locomotive that has helped garner interest in railways, both real and in model form. We share great tips for improving your scenic boundaries, and show how to easily install a decoder, and renumber your rolling stock.

 

Our December 2021 issue is available as a digital edition from Friday October 28, or pick up your printed copy in stores from November 4.

 

*Includes World of Railways TV, featuring the model railways of the Rev. W Awdry, how to fit Sprat & Winkle couplings and a tour of the vehicles at the Abbey Pumping Station Museum.*

 


 

LAYOUTS

Seagone (O-16.5). When limited only by imagination, many model scenarios become plausible, as testified by this freelance narrow gauge scene.

I'm a digital subscriber. There seems to be something wrong with the latest edition.  When I play the video on the page next to the "see the Hornby Duchess in action on Little Bytham, it's actually a video of Andy interviewing the Bachmann boys about the Class 47 and when I try to play the video of the "first look at the Bachmann Class 47" I get a message saying video unavailable.  Is it just my download that's the problem? How do I fix it?  My subscription is thru' pocketmags.

Thanks for getting in touch - the links should be working fine and the text has been updated for both videos as we had them the wrong way around. If you download again, it should be all fixed now. Any further problems, drop me a line.

Thanks for the response Debbie but still not working.  There doesn't seem to be a way tin the Pocketmags app to delete the faulty copy and download a new version.  I've contacted their helpline.

In the Pocketmags app, display your library. You should see three vertical dots to the right of the issue title, below the thumbnail of the cover. Tap on this, should display a menu with "delete" as an option.

 

N.B. iPad; Android may be different…

Excellent, well balanced issue with plenty of articles and reviews of interest to a broad church modeller.

 

Well done to all involved in its production.

Thanks, I have tried that and downloaded a "new" copy and whilst the page order has been corrected, the Hornby Duchess video still isn't playing.  I've also tried to view it on my laptop using the Pocketmags App and it wouldn't play that way either.   All the other videos play without issue.  Can I ask, have you tried to play that video and did it work?
