    For what he says will be his last layout, Peter Kazer has pulled out all the stops to capture the essence of the original 3ft gauge Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway which closed in 1913. Using a scale of 1/4in to 1 foot, he has scratchbuilt everything and the result is a wonderfully sensitive portrait of the simple and remote terminus at Boot.

    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.
