  • A Claud for tight curves

    Jas Millham

    After leaving the mainline at Bishop's Yaxford, and passing through Rookfield and Coldbridge, the parcels train caused much excitement when it arrived at Yaxbury. This was the first time a Claud Hamilton had been seen on the branch. With the arrival of a new locomotive on the Yaxbury Branch I was interested to find out how Jas Millham had managed to build an engine that would negotiate his tight curves and haul its train faultlessly. Here he explains how he blended an articulated chassis with compensation and split frames to create something a little unusual.

  • Bishop's Yaxford

    S

    Jas Millham is one of the hobby's characters and a leading exponent of the all-imperial scale known as S (3/16" to 1ft). Falling nicely between 4mm and 7mm scales, it is widely regarded as the 'ideal' size, yet is also perceived as a scratchbuilder's scale, having minimal trade support. However Jas contends that it is no more difficult than finescale 4mm.

    Moe of Jas Millham's work in the scratchbuilder's scale, S(3/16in-1ft), depicting, as usual, the GER country he knows and loves. This is another episode in the steady growth of a layout full of charm and character, plus a couple of lessons on what you can do with dead hydrangeas, a 1967 Volvo Amazon and things found in rubbish skips.

  • The Bendy J17

    Jas Millham

    Issue 100 (1998)

    p.2

    Getting scale locomotives round bends can drive you round the bend. Jas Millham resorted to building one of his S scale 0-6-0s as an 0-4-2-0 and and, despite an early attempt at mechanical suicide, ended up with a model which negotiated curves with silky smoothness.
