    "After completing Sand Hutton, I had not intended to start anything new but an invitation to demonstrate at Warley made me ponder. I realised that with nothing under construction, I would not be able to carry out the request. The choice of what to do took me back to the 1970s when I had produced a model of parts of the Festiniog railway in 4mm to 1ft. I had been reasonably happy with the double Fairlie locomotives but the single had always been a hotchpotch mechanically. I therefore decided to build a model of 'Taliesen' at 1/4 in to 1ft and since it was highly unlikely that it would ever have a layout to run on, it would be in its earliest guise..."

    As Part of Trevor Hughes' ambitious project to build a 1/32 scale model of Tywyn (Towyn as it was called in the period modelled) Pendre, Peter Kazer somehow volunteered or was coerced into building the two timber buildings which existed in about 1905

  • 'Old Ratty'

    Peter Kazer

    Issue 197 (2010)


    When Peter Kazer turns his attention to one of his narrow gauge interests, you can be assured of some impressive modelling. This time he is tackling the old 3ft gauge Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway which closed in 1913 when iron ore traffic failed. Photographs showing the lonely line crossing the remote landscape of West Cumberland are deeply enticing but it takes courage to attempt to capture its magic. We can't wait to see the result, but in the meantime we proudly bring you a preview of some of Peter's beautifully made stock. This is narrow gauge modelling at its best.
