  • A Brace of Hudswell Clarkes

    Iain Rice

    Issue 38 (1990)



    Iain RIce builds two six-coupled engines from the same stable and designed to do substantially the same job. Each, however, presented radically different problems, resulting in one - the hare - rolling through the workshop in a week, while the second - the tortoise, naturally - took around six years and 51 weeks longer.

  • Kenton - A Suffolk Idyll

    John Watson

    Issue 72 (1994)



    John Watson lives, works and is happy in Suffolk. The ramshackle delights of the old Mid Suffolk Light Railway caught his imagination many years ago and have captivated him ever since, to the extent that he has now produced a second award-winning 4mm/P4 layout portraying the line. It's a lovingly-made and visually stunning work of art.

  • Laxfield A Journey of Discovery

    John Watson

    Issue 0 (1985)



    John Watson began railway modelling just seven years ago with a Hornby train set, a book of track plans and an 8ft x 4ft board. Today, he has a superb 4mm finescale layout which is a consistent success at exhibitions, both with aficionados and the public at large. He puts this full-circle transformation of ideals and standards down to a simple desire to get things right, but there can be little doubt that his studied approach, refreshingly uncluttered by the tenets and protocols which sometimes seem to make finescale modelling a sphere for 'graduates' only, played a major part. What happened to the train set on that domestically unwelcome 8x4? It was sold, and the children for whom it was intended moved on to slot-cars and the more spectacular attractions of Star Wars models. But John had been bitten by the bug and set off with an unusual local prototype in mind on a journey of discovery and, as can be seen here, of achievement. Let him chronicle the progress.
