Electric lamps for your locomotive and a curious beam engine constructed of charity shop finds! More on our steam launch, the Garrett and the Ferrabee engine.
Does you club track run in the dark? As Halloween approaches, many clubs take the opportunity to take children on a night time trip and a set of electric lamps could be just the thing you need to keep the ghosts at bay! Get ready and fit yours soon. The hull of Wide-A-Wake starts to take shape and Bolton Tram No. 46 gains a spiral staircase. Linton Wedlock write a thought provoking piece on encouraging newcomers to the hobby and George Punter writes a postscript as the Saunderson & Mills engine comes to life. Jacques Maurel writes an in-depth piece on making and using chuck jaws and Graham Astbury looks Rescaling Coil Meters which will be of interest to anyone running a battery electric locomotive.
An amusing little engine appears from the workshop of Tony Bird but its construction is absolutely sound. He finds much of the raw materials in charity shops and the result is a delightful, fully working engine with an eclectic background!
And on the cover this time is the Wildish family’s 4 inch scale Burrell traction engine. Alan Barnes catches up with them and discovers their real love of rallying miniatures.
