    EPISODE 12 - 009, LICENCE TO BUILD

    WITH DAN THOMAS AND PAT JAMES



    009, which features 1:76 scale models on 9mm gauge track, has undergone something of a boom in recent years. I sit down with 009 fans Daniel Thomas and Pat James to talk about their personal experiences, and how the fact 009 was not served in ready-to-run form until recently pushed them to build their own stock.

    Thanks to Pat and Daniel for coming on the show!

    A tribute to Pat James: Pat James - A Tribute — RAILWAY MANIA

    Pat James was one of the most interesting and talented people I’ve ever met.

    Pat and I interacted online for several years before we met in early 2019, but he was one of those people who you instantly felt like you’d known for years. We’d talk about trains for hours on end and he was kind enough to be the first guest on the Railway Mania Podcast, as well as contributing the artwork for this and the 3rd episode. Sadly, Pat passed away in March 2020, well before his time.

    The modelling world lost one of their brightest and most promising people, a loving husband and father, and a good friend. I wanted to keep a record of his work for all to enjoy. I will miss him greatly.

    EPISODE 13 - KIDS MAKING KITS

    WITH MAGGIE GRAVETT

    Children are the future of modelling, and we as a community need to nurture their interest. How to help them move up a gear and go from playing trains to building their own models? Maggie Gravett has been running children's modelling sessions for 21 years and joins us to explain how it's done and why it's so important. Thanks so much to Maggie for taking the time to come on the show!


    This is one of my favourite episodes so far and it was great to talk to Maggie.

    I also took the time to listen and a very enlightening discussion together with some excellent points made by Maggie.
    Well worth listening to I thought.
    I also sent the link to my daughter who has watched me model over the years and agrees with Maggie.

    EPISODE 15

    MONSTER TRAINS AND CHEAP TRIPS


    [​IMG]



    Thomas Cook ceased trading in 2019, 178 years after Mr. Cook organised his first excursion train. This podcast episode looks into the early years of excursion travel and the explosion in popularity of ‘cheap trips’ opening up a world of experiences for the working classes throughout the mid 19th Century. Who were these people, how did it come about, what was the experience like?
