mine arrived today. Nice to see Giles's layout on cover. Still think there was more potential in that layout, but going up to 1/55 scale(5.5mm/ft) would have enabled use of closely scaled wargaming 28mm figures.
I originally looked at 1/64 for my metre gauge project, but was disappointed by scarcity of figures and accessories, and the slightly bigger scale enabled me to build the locos I wanted.

Interesting editorial, as I had just been looking though some copies of MRN from 1969 onwards. Many familar names including articles from Giles Barnabe, John Flann and Michael Andress. Also an early article from John Brewer. Assume it's the same one.

Thanks Simon. Sorry not to have included more pictures of the completed layout but I've already posted them here. Also, on one of the two photo sessions it turned out I'd accidentally turned on the Nightview feature so the colour balance was decidedly odd.

I did try looking at Wargaming figures but the cost and amount of work to make them look Indonesian put me off.

As regards the track plan/design, I should have stuck with my earlier thoughts........

Must admit it was only when I checked out the wargaming models that I realised how much there was. Price reflects quality , and I managed to get some French civilians at a reasonable price, but they are not as good as some. Also quite a few of the Lledo models are to 1/55, and the early ones had figures.
There are also a lot of lazer cut building and accessory kits at reasonable prices, certainly a lot cheaper than resin, and good range of oriental subjects.

Mine was there when I got home yesterday! Great read so far. Good to see Giles article - went straight to it for first read!

Thanks to all concerned in production of such a wonderful mag!

Roger

Very Happy

An eagle-eyed reader, named Brent Buckley, in Manchester has spotted a Whooooopsie - The track plan for Starker Verkehr, in both #107 and #114
is wrong (the newer one being a reprint of the first) - the point at bottom left should be an assymetric three-way, and not a left hand as I have drawn it - a whole siding has gone missing - apologies

Looking back at 114 and the great article on Vreeland Rail - I just "visited" it all on google earth. Location is 40 degrees 26'40.29" N and
87degrees 41' 06.02" W The image date is 4 June 2012 and clearly shows a switcher and several tank cars plus several others on the 2 sidings etc as per the picture on page 153. When you zoom in further you can see the buildings etc clearer.

Very interesting !

Roger
