Just found this while looking back at early threads.  I was 18 when they made it.  Not sure if I watched it in colour though . Did the whole series survive and did It make it on to VHS video at any time?  or did just those three about model railways avoid being wiped ?  I can remember the book that went  with the series it had a scale plan of some sort of Horsted Keynes station.

Thanks Jason for that info even at that price i will very likely order a copy. While we are on the subject of old TV stuff what about  " Iron horse steam road " not seen it since it was last shown on TV  in the seventies.

Thanks for posting the links David.  I remember watching these in the 1970s aged about 10 - I still have the book of the series somewhere, complete with plans to build the model Leander class frigate.

 

I had forgotten about building model trees with wire and sisal string.  I tried that out at the time and I recall the trees didn’t look that good.  Model railway scenery has advanced a long way since then thankfully.

 

Cheers

Got a copy on a vhs cassette of the episode of Mike Sharman and Peter Denny, two of the legendary characters in our hobby.

Got my copy of model word DVD  the other day . The quality of the 10 episodes is very good with just a couple of glitches with the sound here and there and some horizontal white lines on the picture occasionally . But still worth the money. Also available is the follow up Model Magic from 1985 I can not remember that for some reason and so might get that as well.
