    Issue 4 (1985)



    Rodney Hall's layout found its origins several years ago, when, exiled from his native Wales, he found himself in a flat far too small to accommodate the layout which he had been building based on the Brecon and Merthyr Railway station at Rhymney. In order to 'keep his hand in' and to have somewhere to run his stock, he decided to build a particularly compact layout that could be erected and dismantled in a short space of time.
