Following on from MRJ N0. 109, John Dornom has been secretly beavering away at yet another stunning creation and this time it's all done by mirrors.
A pair of GWR vans
John Hayes describes the construction of two GWR vans based on Cooper Craft mouldings and portrayed as running in the 1940s.
Straight-cut point blades
J.R. Snowdon describes construction of point blades with the prototypical kink in the stock rail at the hinge between the switch blade and the closure rail.
Point rodding and signal wire runs are seldom modelled accurately, if at all, and a lack of prototype information causes this stumbling block in most cases. In this first article, Steve Hall describes the prototype and its functions while part two will deal with his methods of modelling the items described.
NER Lattice Footbridge
Over 25 years after that famous George Alan kit of a GWR footbridge, Steve Barnfield tries another - a 4mm NER version from Fence Houses Model Foundry - and finds that lessons have been learnt.
