  • Coal and Steel at Derwenthaugh

    Dave Bradwell

    Issue 195 (2009)

    p.303

    4mm/P4

    In MRJ 151 Dave Bradwell urged us to "just get on and build it". Now he moves on to "just operate it". Though cosmetically unfinished, Derwenthaugh has already captured the feel of the railway doing its job for industry. He has adapted American model railway practice to give his layout a real sense of purpose and expand the Finescale approach to its ultimate dimension.

    Detailed look at how Dave uses an adaptation of the American card in pocket method of forming and running goods trains, providing a real sense of purpose for operation, much closer to the prototype, rather than just running a sequence of 'block' trains passing through with 'random fiddling' of stock in sidings. Accompanying photos of the layout.

    4mm/P4

    This P4 gem uses a concoction from various sources to represent the prototype. Tom Mallard made substantial use of Dave Bradwell's B1 chassis kit, whilst the key bodywork parts were from a combination of specially commissioned etches and sheet metal cut and built up by hand. Here he outlines the construction.

    LNER B2 class 4-6-0.
