We visit three railways – Jeremy Buck’s Magdalen Road railway, the Apedale Valley Light Railway and the Daresbury track of the Warrington and District Model Engineers.

Keith Rogers improves the draughting on his 3½ inch gauge Darjeeling Himalayan Class ‘B’ locomotive. Geoff Theasby visits the Kelham Island Museum in Sheffield and learns a bit more about two engineering giants, Joseph Bramah and Henry Maudslay. Brian Rose constructs a 1:1 scale model of a Victorian Windermere-style gentleman’s steam launch. Hotspur continues work on the bunker and well tanks for his 7¼ inch gauge Beattie 2-4-0 locomotive. Our visit to Jeremy Buck’s Magdalen Road railway continues with the story of the restoration of a 5 inch gauge A3 locomotive, no. 2750 Papyrus. Ian Couchman machines the rather complex cylinder for his redesigned feed pump for a Ruston Proctor traction engine. David Haythornthwaite completes the parallel motion for his 1 inch scale Model Engineer beam engine. Martin Ranson makes the boilers for his pair of 32mm ‘Pepperpot’ locomotives.

Ashley Best discusses the motive power for his 1/16 scale Brill tram truck. John Arrowsmith takes a trip to Daresbury to visit the Warrington and District Model Engineering Society.
