  • High Dyke in hindsight

    Roy Jackson, Geoff Kent, John Phillips

    Issue 180 (2008)



    25 years ago, one of the most influential EM gauge layouts ever built made its farewell public appearance. Its exhibition life had lasted barely 3 years (it had taken less than two to build it) but in the time High Dyke set new standards for realism, operational interest and reliable running. Roy Jackson, Geoff Kent and John Phillips look back at the layout that laid the foundations for Dunwich, Blakeney and ultimately Retford itself.

  • Locomotives of Dunwich

    Roy Jackson

    Issue 18 (1987)



    Roy Jackson is the first to admit that his views - and the way he puts them - have not always endeared him to fellow modellers. But his loco building performance on a series of notable layouts, and most recently as CME of the EM triumph 'Dunwich', has always vindicated his somewhat harsh, sometimes hilarious words. Before going on to describe the locomotives of Dunwich in a little more details, Roy, going into print for the first time, provides his 'let's-get-a-few-things-straight' preamble. Some of you may care to hold on to your hats.
